Hey, Home Post readers. Some tragic news coming out of Camp Pendleton, where two sailors lost their lives in a training accident. Another story focuses on the high rate of divorce among women in the military.
Vehicle rollover kills two sailors – UPI.com “Two sailors were killed and a third injured when a water truck rolled over during a training exercise at Camp Pendleton in California, the U.S. military said.” (United Press International)
The Associated Press: Female GIs struggle with higher rate of divorce “For women in the military, there’s a cold, hard reality: Their marriages are more than twice as likely to end in divorce as those of their male comrades — and up to three times as likely for enlisted women. And military women get divorced at higher rates than their peers outside the military, while military men divorce at lower rates than their civilian peers.” (google.com)
