I read once that,”Walking with a friend in the dark is better than walking alone in the light” (Helen Keller). I believe that whole heartedly.
For most of us “Milsos”, that’s exactly what deployment is – walking in the dark. I can’t tell you much about my husbands deployment because… I don’t know anything. I’m in the dark. When something happens, I’m in the dark.
I don’t know about all of you, but it eases my mind to know that I’m not alone in the dark. There are many, many men and women who are there with me – supporting their significant other from miles away trying their best to keep it together. It helps me to know that community is still strong in this country, even if it is through social media.
Life has changed and here’s where we are now… Social Media brings a lot of people together with similar and different stories. Strangers can be sisters. Community can be family.
I started Military SO Called Life to vent and explore myself through writing while my husband works his tail off in another country. First and foremost, this blog is my escape. I don’t expect you all to love it, I don’t expect you all to understand it. It’s for me and my experience.
