Name, Rank & DOB
Okay, well maybe you don't need all of that information-but just a little background. For starters, this isn't my first time at the rodeo. My first "marriage" was to a soldier. I got married at 19, since love will always find a way. I was divorced before I was 25, cause those kind of things never work out. Hind sight is 20/20-usually.Lucky for me I didn't get gun-shy.I met and fell in love with a wonderful man about a year after that, who had also found out that hind sight is 20/20. We married in 2007. And since I don't learn my lessons very well, yes, I married a soldier. This go round is very different however. I am all-in-all a pretty darn happy gal. I love my life. Minus the deployments that loom over our household. My husband enlisted when he was 17 years old and quickly "ranked up", eventually he was offered a Green to Gold ROTC scholarship, which he accepted. That afforded us the ability to stay in the So Cal area for a total of 4 years. Since we are both So Cal natives it was a blissful four years. We added a daughter to our "brady bunch" like clan about a year after we were married. I finished school, had a great job, spent time with non-military people that we had known since childhood and bonded with family. It was a great time in our lives. After my husband received his commission in June of 2009 the Army quickly re-claimed him and we were back on the road. After a few rough months adjusting, we are slowly reintegrating back into Army life and finding out that being the LT's wifey is a whole new ball game. I find the old addage "If you can't beat 'em join 'em" very helpful these days. I am a work in progress.
