I have been married to an active-duty soldier for 13 years. In those long and lovely years, there is only one thing that I can tell you with 100% certainty – and that is military life is HARD.
At times, this life is extremely unpredictable, lonely, and 100 times more difficult than it has to be. But it is also beautiful, adventurous, and full of moments so happy they make you cry with pure joy.
This is where I share the things I’ve learned along the way that make military life a little more enjoyable. From tips for making it through deployment to care package ideas to things to do at Fort Liberty and Fort Hood (the duty stations we’ve spent the most time at), I am sharing everything I know.
