 “The old advice was presented as if written for a peacetime military, with priority placed on manners and  domestic/
administrative detail. Traditions and protocol are lovely, and they are important, but they’ve taken a backseat to more grave concerns. Pardon me, Ma’am, but I’m not worried about place cards for my afternoon tea, I’m worried about my husband getting his legs blown off, or whether our marriage can survive a third year-long deployment.”
