I am an daughter of a career Army man, former Air Guard member and current Air Force wife who decided to go to graduate school while my husband went on his year deployment. I am in school for an MFA in the book arts. This is a program where I've learned traditional printing, book binding and paper making skills. In order to finish the program I need to do a thesis project. I would really like to do my book project on the thoughts, writings and essays of military wives as they go through this life with the loves, difficulties and experiences of everyday life in the military and/or deployment. If anyone out there would like to be a part of this project, I'd love to hear from you. Thanks.
Talk to Diana Loader, she is on this site, and she is my daughter in law. She is also active military for now, she will be leaving the airforce within the next couple of months to stay home with her two children. My son will be staying in the military. So she might put an interesting spin on things about being mil-to-mil, and then separating from the military just becoming a spouse of a military man. Good luck on your thesis.
I'm so glad you want to participate in this project. I want to encourage you to ask friends both where you now live or friends now stationed in other places. I have set up a blog that you can add your thoughts that you want to tell me. I have included some ideas for you if you don't know what to write. Here is the address of the blog.
If your having problems accessing it please let me know. Thanks again, Sonja
