"BETHEL--They've traveled to military bases across the country to see their children who are about to be deployed to trouble spots overseas, or to ships stationed in the Persian Gulf and elsewhere.
They wait anxiously for the text messages and e-mails their offspring send from war zones in Iraq and Afghanistan, and cry when they miss the phone calls home.
But for Danbury-area women with sons and daughters in uniform, there were few places to turn to discuss their deepest fears, or just to talk about the numberless issues that arise while their children serve their country thousands of miles away."
"Whatever you're worrying about or experiencing, somebody else has been
through it," said Pam Tibbits of Bethel, whose son Paul has been stationed north
of Baghdad since last July.
