Lowndes County - While U.S. troops are overseas defending our freedom, their spouses are left with a lot to handle at home. But one South Georgia military base is making their load a little easier to bear.
Susan Washabaugh doesn't get the chance to talk to her deployed husband too often. "I can call my husband through the Moody operator on a 15 minute call once a week, and he can do the same from over there," said Susan.
She's given that chance through a family support program the base offers called "Hearts Apart." "It's not a big expense for us, we can still talk without a big phone bill," said Susan.
Whether its talking about the kids, or family business, the brief phone call is a opportunity she treasures.
Susan also gets help from the base's "Give Parents a Break" program. "Once a month on Saturday, during the day from 10 until 4 they watch my kids for me at the Child Development Center," said Susan.
It's a chance to get away from the everyday hustle and bustle and recharge her energy. "I use it to go shopping, clean my house, or anything to relax and be myself," said Susan.
So even though her hands are full at home, taking advantage of these support programs makes the load a little lighter.
