Lori Mildice Hill's husband has been overseas since last November. Since March, Gunnery Sgt. Darryl Hill, of Bravo Company of the 1st Marines, 5th Battalion, has been serving in Iraq. The family tries to stay in touch through email, and every now and then, a phone call makes it through. But there are times when Lori isn't sure where her husband is. While he's gone, she tries to carry on with her professional life and care for her kids in San Diego, Calif. Listen to her radio diary.
