Not enough can be said about the job that the United States military does each and every day to keep America safe and secure. Servicemen are sent on deployments that keep them away from their family and friends for months and sometimes even years at a time, with their only connection being phone calls and emails. Sadly, this not only makes deceit easier — it even encourages it. And nobody knows that better than Navy seaman Matthew Wilson.

Duty Calls

Wilson was doing a six-month deployment aboard the USS Carl Vinson, and to say that it was hard to be away from his family would be an understatement. But in a military marriage, duty is first; everything else second most of the time, and that's just a reality that they have to live with. And what made things even harder was that calls to his wife Rebecca back home left him feeling like there was something that she just wasn't telling him - and considering their sordid history, he had a pretty good reason to be freaking out.

Being a sailor takes a huge toll on your relationships. At this point, Matt was going on his 3rd shipboard duty assignment and his 5th year of marriage. He and his wife were high school sweethearts and were living the dream. They had a baby boy and a nice house in suburban California. What could be better? But after he had come back from his 2nd tour, Matt came home to every serviceman's worst nightmare. Everything had been taken from him.

It was as if his wife and kid had never even existed in the first place. As it turned out, Rebecca had had enough. With no friends or family to support her, she was left completely alone for over a year with her newborn boy. With no end in sight, Rebecca did what she thought was best for the boy and moved back home, leaving everything behind. But while Matt eventually learned to forgive her for this, it would take Rebecca years to regain Matt's trust after the horror he went through. So now, 2 more kids later, what would make her toss it all away again?

Nobody likes being lied to. And yet, deceit and infidelity continue to be a common cause of fights and breakups. With Rebecca at wits end with Matt's long sea tours and with Matt's trust issues, their marriage was on the rocks. As a child of divorce, he had promised himself he'd never go that route, yet there he was thinking he had no choice. Even so, there are certain levels of dishonesty. Perhaps Rebecca's moment of weakness can be forgiven? But what she was up to now, however, was so outrageous it defies belief — let alone forgiveness.

After a few months on tour, Matt received a message from his buddy back home saying that something was off with Rebecca. It seemed that she was retracting herself from society. What's worse, she was seen selling off some of his furniture. Matt trusted his wife but the more he thought about it, the more it seemed like she was hiding something. Despite his love for her, he also knew how hard it was for her to be without him for so long. He knew he was going to be going home soon and that they could talk about things then, but his mind was racing in the days leading up to his homecoming.
