Hi Freeda! my brother is retired Air Force, he spent a lot of time in the middle east. I've always been proud of him but the day he retired i was so happy and relieved.....my heart is with you. And i didn't even have to deal with all the day to day stuff like a spouse does during deployment(yep, in our forties we were no longer living in the same house ;)Hang in there blue star lady!! steph
Good luck to him and you. It must be hard to be separated for so long.
It's mostly just boring. I've gained a lot of coping skills over the past 15 years - 9 of which he was active duty - but I'm bored as beans.On the upside, my house will get clean.
Thanks for visiting!
