Finally heard from my son. What a relief to hear his voice... sniff,sniff...I saved his first call voicemail (was so sad i missed it)...and listened to it whenever i needed to hear his voice.Continue
Just wondering about the graduation ceremony? Can anyone share their view on what to expect?
My name is Adreanna and I am married to an Army Reserve soldier. We were high school sweethearts and the military was always in the future for us but I never imagined how tough it would be. He has been in for about a year and I'm still getting used to everything. Our first deployment is looming…Continue

I am tired of my husband always being taken away from me. There is no telling when he is going to be home from work and he is gone every morning by 5:30... I love the fact that my husband is so into to something, but I would love for him to have time for me too. My husband is airborne so he is jumping once a month that causes him to be home off and on for a week, him being a Sargent.
Lord I need a huge stress relieve, I need to take up Zumba or something of that…Continue

I am new to being a military mom, as well. My son left today for MEPS and will be sworn in, in a couple of days, which we will be at. I broke into tears last night when he hugged me goodnight. Went to bed crying and got dressed this morning to take him and broke down again as he was about to board the shuttle van. I will see him Tuesday, then not again for 8 1/2 weeks. I hate it so bad that he is not here for Christmas, but on the same hand, I am so very proud of him. He is…Continue
My beautiful fiance left today out of north island and will be gone for about 5 months and will pull in to Norfolk, Va. Man this is my first deployment and its hard ! Both of my parents were military and I get stronger every time, seeing them come and go. I'll be okay, im a big girl ! It sure would be nice to find girlfreind though that are in my area sine i dont know anyone here !
I have been keeping myself very busy while my husband of six months is away training for Afghanistan. This deployment really hasn't been the issue for me, but the thought of the first real deployment for six months or more is scaring me senseless. I feel that I have been more stressed out about Afghanistan than the fact that I know nobody out here in Jacksonville. I've only lived here since June and I started a fourty hour a week job just to keep busy. Now it consumes my entire week and I…Continue

I fell in love with my husband within a week and knew that i wanted to spend the rest of my life with him at that moment.. What I didn't realize was he was already in a relationship, with the military. I've always been a strong person, able to stay by myself for long periods of time & always find things to do.. He is only in the field and i am feeling a void, like he is supposed to be with me and the house making all his annoying voices... Him being away makes me realize how much I truly…Continue

I'm and Air Force Key Spouse and I often hear "What's that?" Or "Do I have a Key Spouse?" Or even "What do you all do?" That troubles me for many reasons. It does because that tells me that not too many people know about us and therefore can't access our knowledge about military benefits, or even avail themselves of the services we offer.
We are an integral part of our squadrons providing peer to peer support for our Airmen and Airwomen. We are the face of the Unit and must adhere…Continue
My husband and I have had a whirlwind of a romance. We met January 2011, when I moved in with him, we were engaged by March, married in April, and we love eachother more than I ever thought possible. God made him especially for me. I realized, however, his career in the Navy hinders us from seeing eachother as much as I'd like. Navy wives have to keep strong, hold the fort down until their husbands come back. I had no clue how strong I had to become, until pushed into the situation. Not only…Continue
39 days to go. I am going to cherish everyday until then.
I received a Christmas box of presents for the family yesterday from my daughter who left for BMT on 11/15. I was so excited because she had a handwritten note inside and I could tell that she misses us as much as we here at home are missing her. I can't wait til her graduation comes in early Jan 12. I just want to hug her so tight!!!
