President Bush's Wars: Bad for American Families 

56,000 Divorces the Army during Bush's wars? I bet the marriage rate is down as well. What will the American Family Association have to say about this astounding statistic? I bet it's something like, "While war can cause a considerable strain on military families, at least 'the gays' haven't been able to destroy the sanctity of marriage."

Defense Department records show more than 56,000 in the Army — active, National Guard and Reserve — have divorced since the campaign in
Afghanistan started in 2001.

Officials partly blame long and repeated deployments which started after the invasion of
Iraq in 2003 and stretched the service thin.
