11 things I love about being the Wife of a Soldier

06 May 2011

1. I love a man in uniform (of course)

2. Knowing that he is apart of 1% of the USA population that serves his country. (small group of special people)

3. Traveling to places I probably would have never (in my lifetime) visited otherwise.

4. The benefits!! (Love/Hate relationship) LOL!

5. "Birds of a feather flock together" ~ Military Wives Rock! ~We love and support our husbands 100%

6. Military Balls - enough said.

7. Sense of pride and patriotism for my Soldier and Country

8. Marriage Retreats & Education Benefits

9. Military Children - Proud to be a military mom to military children --It's NOT easy.

10. Missionary Churches Overseas - I love my church that we have available that serve our military families!!

11. Retirement!! YAHOO!! Closer to retirement and though it's been a journey, we are on the down slope and we will always have our memories

Most are about what I can get, which can seems a little bit selfish, but I feel that military men & woman (plus their families) sacrifice alot to serving their country. It's also (FOR ME) a privilege to be a military spouse. My husband is my one true friend. Going through a deployment right now, makes me appreciate him all the more.

I love and miss you Honey!! See you when you get back. ;)

I've never been to a military ball, but then again, I'm a newbie spouse :) Thanks for the comment on my blog! Education is super important to myself and my husband. Even though he's been out of school a while, he plans to go back and get his college degree. It's awesome :)
