Abstract:

Todays American military personnel, have spouses who share their potential for heroic stature. Opportunities for meeting challenges above and beyond the commonplace do exist for military family members. Their awareness of the noble dimensions that are possible in their lives can be an important coping skill. Knowledge of their strengths and weaknesses enables military families and their care providers to deal with their omnipresent challenge isolation. Military families can live lives with heroic dimensions. They explore new domains, both geographic and emotional. They are often alone. Their terrain is full of peaks and pits with very few plateaus. The military lifestyle offers the opposing possibilities of greater success or greater failure than are common to most of their civilian peers. The environment most conductive to human development is one sufficiently changeable to pose constant challenges, but not so severe as to prevent successful response.
