There is no doubt that our servicemen and women who are serving in Afghanistan and Iraq, as well as other locations around the world, are performing a service that can never be measured or repaid. I have the greatest appreciation for these brave heroes.

There is no doubt that our servicemen and women who are serving in Afghanistan and Iraq, as well as other locations around the world, are performing a service that can never be measured or repaid. I have the greatest appreciation for these brave heroes. Unfortunately, we know the battles that members of the armed forces face do not end when they leave enemy territory. Depression, posttraumatic stress disorder, long separations and readjustment to civilian life all take their toll on military families. The sad truth is that the military divorce rate is higher than that for the general population.

In 2007, 3.7% of married Marines got divorced, up 0.4% from the previous year. For the Army population, the numbers rose from 3.3% to 3.5% in the same period of time. The numbers constitute the highest divorce rate in sixteen years. And, veterans' groups believe these statistics underestimate the divorce rate as they don't account for divorces that occur after a husband or wife leaves the service or marriages that are on the brink of dissolution.

Military divorces involve factors that are not usually found in civilian situations. For instance, under Texas law, divorce proceedings may be placed on hold for the entirety of a deployment and sixty days after the soldier's return home. And generally, Federal laws will not divide property to a military's members spouse unless the marriage has lasted for at least ten years of active duty. In addition, lengthy time spent overseas can be used as an argument when determining parental custody rights.

If you are in the military or a military spouse and you believe your circumstances have led to the need for a military divorce, you need to make sure that you are aware of the laws that apply specifically to you and you need to speak to a Austin military divorce lawyer, a Houston military divorce attorney or San Antonio Military divorce lawyer. With large military bases such as Fort Hood and Fort Bliss located in Texas, the divorce attorneys at
Bertolino LLP have a great deal of experience in this area. We also have divorce attorneys who practice in Killeen and Harker Heights. Please make an appointment with one of our military divorce attorneys at our Austin, Houston, or San Antonio office today to discuss your situation.  http://www.belolaw.com

You are right Robert! But this administation would have our wounded paying for their own hospitalization if they could. Do you think Dodd, Pelosi, Reid, Shumer, Frank or even Obama give one rat's rear about our vets or our military troops? Like Merle Haggard says, "They like our milk and honey but they don't want noting to do with earning it." Those Democrats get on my fighting side!

These are the people who should be getting bonuses, not fat cat execs who don't have family members in the military. They are paracites who take, but don't give.
