I came across the following in a military spouses forum that I participate in.  Like the author of the message, Sears is usually not my first choice.  However, I am going to pledge to buy at least 1 gift there this holiday season just on principle.  I hope you will do the same.  All of this [...]

I spoke to my husband this morning as he was preparing to leave his FOB.  The next time I hear from him, he will have completed the first leg of his journey home for R&R.  Although he has only been deployed for about 6 months, it has been closer to 9 since we lived under [...]

CPT Greg Dalessio

When we lived in Germany, I was the officer records clerk for our post/brigade.  I loved my job and one of the main reasons why was the people I served.  I knew almost all of the officers on our small post and enjoyed being able to help them.  They always knew that if they needed anything [...]

I wanted to take a few minutes out of what is sure to be a busy Independence Day to express my gratitude to those who allow us to live in a wonderful, free country.  Thank you to all of those that currently serve and have served honorably in our military.  I would love to be [...]

Since this is my first post, I figured I would just tell you about me. Hopefully this will help you feel like you know me a little better when reading my future posts. I grew up in a small town in Georgia. I went to the same school my whole life and met my husband, [...]

New Blogger headed our way – Welcome Cristin

I am thrilled to welcome another new author to the blog! Her name is Cristin and I believe is one of the “original” milspouse bloggers (since 2005). Many of you might already be familiar with her blog. It was about a year and half ago when I started reading RedLegWife. I was so impressed, it [...]
