PETERSON AIR FORCE BASE, Colo. – Senior Airman Rose Gudex, 21st Space Wing Public Affairs photojournalist, surrounds herself with her Air Force family from Peterson Air Force Base, Colo., during difficult times. Gudex didn’t have a solid support system before joining the military, but found a family in her brothers and sisters in arms. (U.S. Air Force photo by Airman 1st Class Dennis Hoffman) Good night, mom

Default Air Force Logo My spouse, our perks
“What happened to all the ABU shirts?,” asks my husband as he frantically searches through our cluttered closet for a clean shirt to wear under his uniform. I think to myself, “You would know if you did the laundry,” but my sensible side persuades me to hold my tongue and help him pack his gym bag.  There’s no sense in arguing when we’re both tired
