Army WifeI am a supporter of the US Army. I am proud of my husband for serving his country. I am loyal to the vows we made on our wedding day. I try to encourage my husband each day (even when we are apart). I sincerely pray for his well being each night.
I spend our anniversaries, holidays and birthdays apart. I have spent more time apart from him than together. When he is deployed, I can not call him (which is especially frustrating if/when we have an argument).
I live where the Army tells me to live. My career is sometimes put on hold because I move around so much. I am on a first name basis with the workers at the post office because I mail so many packages. I can not hold my husband's hand on post when he is in uniform. I constantly worry about seeing two men dressed in Class A's approaching my door. I sleep alone. I patiently wait for my husband to return home from war.
