Hey there :-)

My name is Mary, and I just found this app on FB. I was hoping to find something like this to meet new ppl and share the joys that I have come upon in my life so far.
My husband is in the Army and is currently serving in Iraq. He left 2 wks after our son, David, was born. It has been very long and tough journey for the both of us. He is an AMAZING man and I thank God everyday for giving him to me. He works so hard and loves his job, but he never puts his job before our son or I. I will stand by him for the rest of our lives and always have my head held up high bc I am so very proud of him. I have been blessed with the family that I have.

Thanks for all of your comments ladies! I'm glad I have found several women out there that can talk about it. We have one of the hardest jobs (in my opinion). I hope you all are having a wonderful day!

Hey! I feel the same way about my Air Force husband! He's gone through so many hardships to get to where he is today, and he makes me proud for never giving up and always standing strong, even when things don't always seem to go well.

Hi Mary,

I understand what you are saying. I am a Marine Wife, and VERY proud of my husband. I always tell him that he is my hero. We have been married for over 4 years, and have a son, who will be 4 yrs old in October. I was 8 months pregnant when my husband had to deploy. So, he missed his birth. and their deployment got extended 2 times, so he didnt even come home until our son was 7 months old. and then he deployed again 10 mos later. I hope you are having a great day!

It's a good feeling to have the man God blessed you with...my husband is navy and though his deployments are usually 6 months- 1 year where he is boarding and fighting pirate ships, he is my hero in every way as well, he loves our children and myself without condition..and we love him the same way for everything he does...

I am a non-military pilot's wife, and though it's different, in some ways it is similar.
My husband was made for me and vice versa, & luckily God led us to each other! He is my balance in almost everything.
It can be hard, but it is so worth it, and our kids appreciate him all the more that he is gone every few days. Time with him is precious, and we all know it. Love your husband and your kids will grow up better for it! :D I wish you all well.

Hello Ladies!

I am a fellow Army wife who's husband is currently in Iraq. He left when I was 6 months along, managed to get leave for her birth, and left to go back when she was 7 days old. He will return when she is close to 9 months. I agree, it is VERY difficult to be a military wife but our pride runs deep, doesn't it? =)

I am a Navy wife and my husband left when I was 3months pregnant and did not come back until a month after the birth of our son. He was back for 7months and just left on Monday for a 8month deployment. We have had a very long and tough journey as well, but just like you I have an amazing husband and would not trade him for the world! It is worth waiting for him. Just remind yourself that everyday that passes is a day closer that he will be home!

@Mei
Same to you! What we do as wives/mothers is a very tough job. But when we have a loving husband, everything falls into place :-) I can't even imagine only spending 3 anniversaries together, especialy since you have been married 6yrs. Congrats to you both on your soon to be baby :-) I just wish he(your husband) would be there to share that wonderful moment. I wish the best of luck for the both of you! God Bless!

That's so encouraging to hear. My husband will be leaving a month after my due date too so I will be in a very similar situation. I feel just as lucky though. Being married 6 years and having spent only 3 of our anniversaries together has been tough, but I feel it makes us treasure eachother more. I am blessed by your sacrifice as well as your husband's sacrifice. I love my husband so much and appreciate just how much he gives to us and to this country of ours too. Stay strong and enjoy every moment you have with each other. God bless you all!
