So I was randomly looking online and found this.





I am the wife of an American Soldier

I am a supporter of the United States Army- an encouragement for the protectors of the greatest nation on earth.

Because I am proud of my husband and the uniform that he wears,

I will always act in the ways creditable to him, the military service and the nation he is sworn to guard.

I am proud of my husband. I will do all that I can to protect and provide for my family in his absence.

I will be loyal to my husband and the vows that we made as we entered the covenant of marriage.

I will do my full part to carry on the values and goals we have set apart for our children in the same manner.

As a soldier's wife, I realize that I play a vital role in my husband's decision to become a member of a time- honored profession- that I am doing my share to keep a live the principles of freedom for which my country stands.

No matter what situation I am in, I will never do anything for pleasure, profit, or personal safety,

Which will disgrace my husband, his uniform or our country,

I will use every means I have to encourage my husband to be the best soldier that he can be.

I am proud of my husband, my county and its flag.

I will fly the flag and will always remember the sacrifices made by my husband and by generations of men and women that have served our beloved country.

I will try to make my husband proud of the manner in which I accept his decision to defend my freedom an the freedom of all American citizens-

For I am the Wife on an American Soldier.





I thought this Army Wives Creed was so cute, I hope it make some of the moms on here feel a little better while there husbands are gone or what every is going on with their lives right now... I know it did with me my husband is going to training a couple hours away for the next week it is hard to not have him here because we just moved up here after spending 6 months apart for his basic and AIT... I just have to remember everything will be ok.

If you see this, leave this form field blank.

I just became an army wife and that creed was the most amazing thing I have ever heard.

Thank you! I absolutely loved the army wives creed. It is so true. The military even understands how vital we are. Every time my husband reinlisted, I also was given an award. It is awesome to be able to be recognized. Just remember to never give up. There's always someone that you can turn to when you feel lonely while he's gone. Make sure you get in touch with the FRG assigned to your husband's unit. They will be a great help!

I have been any Army Wife since 2000. Back a few years ago my husband & I where at command pre-deployment bbq and we(wives) where asked if we knew the Army Wife Creed and if we could say it without looking it up. Well ten of us could and the rest felt like a bunch of retards. You may ask why anyone would memorize the Army Wife Creed, well I did it because my husband serves, he has to know Soldiers Creed, Specialist Creed, NCO Creed, Infantry Creed, Ranger Creed and so forth, So if he can do all of that then I see no problem with wives memorizing Army Wife Creed, Infantry Wife Creed and Ranger Wife Creed. It's our duty as their wives. Plus when the commander calls on you wouldn't you like to just know it, instead of being embarrassed and your S/O is also embarrassed..

I love this one it's so nice I wish they would make military spouses say this then maybe there would be fewer military families splitting up after 2-3 years. Anyway there is another poem i don't know who wrote it but it is called Silent Ranks I found it on a plaque on Ebay While I was looking for an Army Wife shirt.

Here it is


I wear no uniforms, no blues or army greens
But I am in the Army in the ranks rarely seen
I have no rank upon my shoulders - salutes I do not give
But the military world is the place where I live
I'm not in the chain of command, orders I do not get
But my husband is the one who does, this I can not forget
I'm not the one who fires the weapon, who puts my life on the line
But my job is just as tough. I'm the one that's left behind
My husband is a patriot, a brave and prideful man
And the call to serve his country not all can understand
Behind the lines I see the things needed to keep this country free
My husband makes the sacrifice, but so do our kids and me
I love the man I married, Soldiering is his life
But I stand among the silent ranks known as the Army Wife

This is wonderful! I am not only an Army wife, but I am a soldier too! So I get the best of both worlds I guess. And it does get hard to be supportive of long hours and different missions at times (my husband is Active and I am Reserves) But I know that it is definitely meant to be.
Thank you for sharing.

Thank you for posting this. It was really encouraging to me, and I will be saving it for future re-reads. I'm the mom of a 3 year old, an 18 month old, and I am 17 weeks pregnant. My husband left for his first deployment just last month, and it's been difficult. But giving up has never entered my mind once. Sometimes I get bogged down because my husband won't be home to meet this new little one until s/he's 6-7 months, and that's a very long time in a little baby's life. But I try to stay positive about everything, because if I let myself sink then I am allowing my kids to sink with me, and my soldier's ability to cope and do the best he can do will be compromised. I never realized before just how crucial, and so under-appreciated, the soldier's family left at home is for the safety of our country. I will never make that mistake again, and I hold my head high, knowing I have joined in the military wives ranks. I tell my 3 year old that we are just as much heroes as our soldier is.

I hope every thing works out for you guys. I have not gone through a deployment with my husband, but i have with my brother. he is still over there. he left behind a 2 year old step son and then his almost one year old son. So i am not looking forward to my husband leaving but i know sooner than later he will be leaving.

Love this army wives creed, completely agree! Its hard being the wife of a solider and I think so many people forget that! Our last deployment lasted 23 months and there is another one coming up in May, only this time he will be leaving behind me and our 3 year old and newborn baby(due in march) Hopefully it will only be the 12 months this time!

You are so welcome. I have my husband who has only been in the army for 10 months who missed out on our daughters life for 6 months, our daughter is 22 months old and I think it has been hard on her because when he first left she looked for him through every door. and I also have a brother who is deployed right now and hasnt really seen his niece like only a couple of weeks at a time. and every time he comes back she doesnt like her uncle because she doesnt really know him. I feel bad for both my brother and husband because with my daughter she does the same thing and I think if i went through that it would be so hard.

This made me cry! My husband has been deployed for almost 12months now. This is his second deployment and this has been the hardest in the world! We have an 18month old son that my husband hasnt gotten to see really grow up! Its the worst feeling in the world and then I read something like this and it reminds me to be grateful for the life I live, for it may not be the easiest but the definitely the most honorable! :) Thank You for this!!!

Me too but there are a lot of army wives that do not fallow this at all that is why there is so many men and women that are getting divorced while they are overseas and it is killing me to hear half of what the women put on here.
