NORFOLK, Va. (Tribune News Service) — Lt. Cmdr. Karen Sankes-Ritland never imagined life outside the military.

Her father was a Marine. Her husband is an explosive ordnance disposal officer. She’s a Naval Academy graduate.

But more than a decade into her career, the strains of family life and a dual-military household were taking a toll. Her father had recently died, her third child needed open-heart surgery and she was pregnant with her fourth child. Meanwhile, her husband was scheduled to deploy soon. https://www.stripes.com/news/us/a-cultural-shift-is-helping-keep-talented-mothers-in-the-navy-1.580946
