Unexpected Consequences

In this episode, U.S. Army Veteran Frank DeVito shares a story about the unexpected sacrifices service members often make when they choose military service. For DeVito, a mistake on some paperwork meant not having the opportunity to say goodbye to a family member who'd loved and supported him, including his decision to join the military, when he was deployed to Afghanistan. In spite of the heartache, Frank continued to fulfill his responsibilities, and said he still feels like the sacrifices he made were worth the cost.
