I’m not in the military-but I am a civilian counterpart with the Air Force. I work with the military families. Anyway, this picture was in an email I got at work today. It’s very true! Military spouses are amazing!

It may be new to me but I don’t see it as hard or a negative thing – I see it as an opportunity to not take the man I love for granted.
Life is an adventure – I knew what it was when I said yes to the first date.

I am a military FI and I love him and am extremely proud of the man he is. He is such a good person with a huge heart and all he wants to do is make me happy. I have never met a man that has ever put me first until him.
True it is hard sometimes but he is so worth it to me.

@MrsKeAloha: As a child of a military couple, I can say that the hardest/most negative part usually comes when/if the couple has children. It was extremely difficult when my father was deployed for 10-16 months at a time. Of course it was hard on my mom, but as a child, it’s quite difficult to comprehend and cope with.
After seeing my parents just celebrate their 25th anniversary (my father served in the Army for the first 23 years of their marriage), I can say that I am always impressed with how much and how well military couples/spouses thrive given difficult circumstances.

I am a military wife. I had to do exactly this — I moved 1,200 miles from my only home, my only friends and family to a state that I knew no one and had never been to.
My husband is in the Navy, stationed here at Tinker Air Force Base. He asked me straight up when we were dating if I could handle uprooting my entire life at the drop of a hat for him. The dislike of change and fear of the unknown wanted me to say no. My love for him made me say yes, and it was the best thing I’d ever done.
I stole a quote from A Knight’s Tale for him. “Run, and I will run with you.”
I’ll follow that man to the ends of the earth.

@bmo88: I do understand that – at least the best I can. I just try to focus on the good side of things. I know it is not easy, I have been through deployments – not as a child. I still want to think of the adventure and the homecoming. I am so very proud of the spouses with children – how they adjust and people come together.
