  5. Hi!! Following you back!!!

    I was reading your profile - it brought back lots and lots of memories. My (now ex) husband was in the military as well. He was deployed twice - once to Korea for a year and then during Desert Storm. It's great that you'll be keeping a journal of sorts, you'll definitely want to be able to look back at this time.

  7. Hi! Got your comment and I am now following you back. My dad was a Staff Sgt. in the Army for 22 years and we travelled alot until I was 13. He wanted to re-inlist for another 5 but Vietnam was still going on then and they told him they could not guarantee that he would not go. He had served in Korea and he said one war was enough. He was single then but while Vietnam was going on he had a wife and three children so he took his retirement. He really did not want to leave but I think Momma must have convinced him it was not worth the risk. I only know the military from the view point of a child and of course alot of things have probably changed since then, but I have to be honest and say it was the best years of my life! We lived in Germany 2 different times. I basically grew up there and when Dad was going to re-inlist he was asking for those 5 years to be in Germany, that is how much we all loved it! So, I would have been 18 when we came back to the States, but it was not meant to be. He went on to work for UPS for another 21 years. I was not born when Dad was in Korea so I can't really give you any insight into that experience but I can tell you what worked and did not work as far as being a child growing up in the military. So, if you have any questions, feel free. Good Luck and God Bless your husband. I keep in touch with a 2nd cousin who is in Afgan right now. He has access to Facebook so he sends messages almost daily and pics so hopefully, your husband will be lucky to do that too so you won't feel too isolated. Also, they do not supply the soldiers with hardly anything. We had to round up supplies like pillows, pillowcases, toothpaste, brushes, shampoo, deordorant to send to him in care packages. I always support the troops when called upon. If your husband gets over there and needs care packages, please let me know. My cousin is coming home soon so he won't need anymore packages. I usually pick two names of guys I don't know and send out holiday packages or other packages if needed. So, don't feel awkward in letting me know. I do it anyway and I might as well have a face to go with a name. Take care. And give your husband a hug from me saying I appreciate all that he does. I proudly support my soldiers and never hesitate to jump to their defense regardless of who is doing the complaining. In my book you never ever diss a soldier. Thanks for letting me know I now have a military spouse and family following my blog.
