L.A. Times columnist and SoCal Connected correspondent Steve Lopez reports on the lives of military families. He met with a group of Marine Corps wives at Camp Pendleton recently to talk about what it's like to hold down the family fort during overseas deployment. With the conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan, increasing numbers of military members face multiple deployments. The spouses talked candidly about their highs, their lows and even their love letters!
