Hi Jayde,

My name is Caroline and I am an Army wife. We are currently stationed at Buckley AFB in Colorado. At first when I moved here with my husband and daughter I felt very isolated because i had no family or friends here. So my advice to you is to get involved. Volunteer somewhere if your a stay at home mom and reach out to your military resources so you don't feel so alone. I have not really reached out to other wives because there is alot of cattiness going on and I don't want to be apart of all that. I watch the drama on tv I don't want it in real life. Also take things in stride. Don't panic, I say this because it is easy to feel overwhelmed when your husband is away. I loved Tucson I grew up there. Do you live on Davis Monthan AFB?

O MY Goodness Caroline...firstly i am so sorry to hear that.



1)i know there is guilt but you do know it's not your fault you got cancer...



2) Counseling and Prayer..not in that order...of course he is upset. most men want to have a child of their very own, not discounting his love for you guys daughter but that is how it is. He needs someone to talk to. He is hurt and angry and does not know how to deal with that right now. you guys need help. you can also look into other options, have you tried that..surrogacy, adoption. when you are married it for better or worse and sickness and in health so this is just a bump and prayerfully you guys can get over it. also ill be posting this where other ladies can see it if you don't mind...ill message you as well

If you see this, leave this form field blank.

Hi! My name is Eryn and I just got to my husbands first duty station at fort bragg with my 2 girls (my oldest is almost 7 and the baby is 11 months). This is my first time living out of the town I grew up in. Are there any other military wives/moms that are stationed here that would like to hangout or have a play date? I would also like any info on places that I can go to help me meet people and activities that I can sign my daughter up for. Any info would be great! : )

I'm an army wife with 2 kids. 16 mo girl and 4 yo boy. My husband is currently doing a 14 mo deployment to AFG, which started off as a 12 mo unaccompanied tour to Kuwait. We are living in Louisiana (our home town) while he is gone. It's tough going through a deployment without the support of other wives! The last deployment we were living off post at Bragg and had such a wonderful support group of wives!

My name is Andrea, my husband reaches his 20 year mark in two weeks and we've been stationed all over but his current duty station is Ft Bragg, NC. I'm a mom of a 22 year old daughter, 16 year old son and a 13 year old daughter. It's been a roller coaster ride...some days it's extremely exciting and other days you feel like you could vomit...what has made all the difference have been the other amazing military wives I now call beloved friends! I don't see him retiring soon, so here's to some more adventures!!!

Hi all! My name is Jeanette, a mom for 2 little crazy boys. They keep me on my toes thats for sure. My husband and I have been married for 5years now and he is in the army. We have been stationed at Fort Lewis for a bit now and can say it is lovely and beautiful here and lots to do. We found out few months ago that he will be on recruit duty next year. So were pretty excited for a change and some what of a civilian life lol. We are hoping for Florida where i am originally from but will be happy with the West coast in general.

I have 3 kids, an 8 almost 9 year old daughter, a 7 year old son, and a 2 year old son. I've been going stir crazy, since I'm a stay at home mom, and have no friends yet.

My name is Shantelle, friends and family call me Shauna. I'm originally from Baton Rouge, LA but have lived in many different places in the south from San Antonio, TX to Destin, FL. I'm 27, 28 in March, I have career goals but am strictly a stay at home lady til my kids are old enough to suffer through my college experience (lol). My husband has not particularly chosen a branch yet but he is 29 and the choice will be made within the week. Most likely, between the Air Force and the Army. My children are Julian (boy, 8), and Lorelai "Rory" (girl, 3). I am not ridiculously new to the military, spending my teenage years in Fort Walton Beach, FL, I was surrounded by many military installations, and those military brats that I love so much and went to school with. My family moved around a lot growing up, so moving every year to couple of years is not new at all either. No idea what really to expect from military life, being a wife or mama, but I'm hoping to get to know people who can prepare me and support me through all of this. Signed, Scared Silly!

Hello I am a navy wife and we been stationed in Norfolk VA for 10 years. My husband and I are from the same town which is Lancaster SC. We have two girls 10yrs old and 15 months and I have been through so many deployments alone and I can say it's been really hard. I have met a few females but I cant say that they were really good friends. I really would like to meet someone that I can relate to. I love to go shopping, out to eat and manly girly stuff lol..... My husband keeps telling me that I need to find me some friends to go out with so I can get some time for myself but its sad to say I dont have any. Can someone please give me some pointers on what I should do about this????

Hi everybody, my husband is Army and just went back active duty after being reserve for 2 years. His next duty station is Ft. Bliss. I have no idea when I will be heading over there yet...



We have two little boys, 2 and 4 years old. We currently live in Belgium.



I have never pcs'ed before, so this is going to be very new to me, I will have a lot of questions!

Everything else army-wife related will need some refreshing, but I think (hope) it comes back to me soon. I know it will be different though because the whole time we have been married he has been stationed at Ft. Sill where all his family is, and I had a lot of friends there before I moved.



I hope to get to know some other mommies at Ft. Bliss!!

I'm Annette and I am an Army/National Guard wife of five years. We live in Rockwall Texas and Steven and I have a one year old named Summer Rayne who will turn two this coming November 24th and we are expecting our second child whose due date is March 12th, 2013. We haven't discovered the gender of our second baby just yet-we had to reschedule the sonogram appointment for Halloween because the sonogram-technican was scheduled for Vacation time. Boo for us-that was our trick, but finding out what the baby is so we can end the Name Wars of 2012 at least for one gender will be our treat. The way I see it, I win either way the cookie crumbles because I am so blessed to be a Mummy at all. We were told we couldn't have children-now that we are on our second kiddo I snap my fingers at the doctors who said so and and say, 'Kiss my tooshie! We just proved you wrong TWICE!' We are a Christian family and even though working in Retail makes it tough work getting to church on Sundays sometimes, I always say my prayers, read my bible and give God Thanks for all of His many Blessings, including my little Miracles whom I like to call my Munchkin and my littlest Munchkin. I love being a Mummy and I love being a Military wife. I work at a bookstore(I am a self proclaimed Bibliomaniac-a person who LOVES books and reading) and I love cooking, singing, dancing, doing all sorts of Arts&Crafts with my kiddo, watching movies-in fact I'm not sure if there is a hobby I DON'T like. LOL If you want to know more, I hope to make friends and hear from you!



God's many Blessings!

Hello! My name is Ashley. My husband was active duty in the Army for 8 years, he came home, we met, got married, joined the reserves (because active was not an option at the time). Now we are in the process of returning to active duty so he can finish out his career in the military. He was 18 when he joined the army and he loved it, It was his life. We have 3 children ages 6, almost 5, and 9 months. I've never been too far from family, so I am nervous but excited to see where this will take us!

Hi My name is Sue. My youngest son was just deployed to the Middle East September 25, 2012. He's in the Air Force and has been in over two years. This is his first deployment. I have to say that he may be in one of the (my perception) safer deployments as it is in Oman (Guam would be a better one for me :-) ) but I recognize the area is very unstable and anything could happen at any time. This is what is the most scary for me.



I'm very proud of him and was initially not happy that he enlisted because of the war but it only took seeing him in basic graduation to know that this was for him, a conscious decision that he made and one that I was proud of because he made a decision based on the values that we raised him.

Are there any other parents on the forum that has had children deployed that can give me perspective? How changed are they when they return?



I'm a social worker and have worked with families who have not been in the direct combat zone who have PTSD. I can honestly say I understand you don't have to go around the world to experience this but I don't understand how this happens and what the conditions are that create this. I also recognize the living environment is very different (I think) from what they are used to but I don't know or understand how to put it together.

Can anyone help me? Thanks
