Bring back Military R&R

Messages Sent So Far
We've been at war and deploying soldiers back to back for 11 years now and the military family is suffering. There is more PTSD, more broken marriages, more military teenagers into substance abuse and juvenile delinquency because their dad, and now increasingly mom as well, is never home. Cutting soldiers' two weeks R&R mid-deployment and making military families spend even more time apart is not right.<br />
<br />
Please support our military and give our troops who are putting their lives on the line for our country the two weeks mid-deployment R&R with their families that they so richly deserve.

And now you have to be on deployment for 365 days to qualify for R&R. But the DON has increased the amount of maternity leave.

My husband has a skill set that can be used in the civilian sector. I understand the cost of family leave for the military but I'm not convinced that it's more costly than training new personnel if people like my husband chose to leave the military. What's the incentive to stay? Is it worth damaging a family?
