>This was inspired by Ann Marie. I read her entry and I just had to do this. The thing is, Ann Marie is an Army wife. She’s stationed in Germany with her husband and kids.
Ann Marie, I’m an Army wife. I’m german. We live in the most american state there possible is. Texas. So I know how much you miss home, your family and friends. I decided to dedicate this to all of us, Army wifes. Far away from home, raising our kids by ourselves for very long periods of time, missing our country, family, friends, food and everything else you can miss.
Today I went on a photo drive, just for all of you that can’t be here. I know it’s the every day things that you really miss, so I went and got them for you 🙂
This is where I live. Texas. Fort Hood. Does the name ring a bell? The place of the horrible shooting in November. The same day I moved our little family on post. I was stuck in the new house with movers and a friend, my two boys and her daughter, she was pregnant. We had no internet, no TV. We were not allowed to leave the houses, because nobody knew how many shooters were there. Through my phone I got emails from other Army wives, that I’ve never met and probably never will, sending us updates of what was going on. That day, I was glad my husband was in Iraq and not here.
