I will be strong.

I will be strong.
Though each day I am faced with the fact that you will be leaving soon.
I will be steady.
Even though times would call for me to break down and fall apart.
I will be proud.
Because you are doing this for us and our future.

I will guard your back while you are here,
Then when you leave I will hold down the fort till your return.
I will be loyal and loving,
Yet fierce and hard.
I will be the one you need me to be.
Because I love a soldier.

The army may have you now,
But I will always have your heart.

I am an Army Spouse

I am an Army Spouse. I am proud to be one.
I stand behind my soldier and I do what needs to be done. He needs me to stay home and take care of things while he is gone, so I do it. He needs someone who will keep everything in order for him and play the part of husband and wife. I have to be calm. I have to be steady. I have to be strong...for him. I cannot be weak and childish. I cannot play into others games. I must be mature when no one else around me is. I must be solid.

I take care of him because it is my choice. I stand silently at his side while he is home and guard the home-front while he is gone. I will have moments where I question things when times get rough but I will always know my duty as an army spouse. It is my duty to take care of things at home, it is my duty to keep life going as if he was still here. It is my duty to be stronger than most, because most couldn't do this job. I stand among the women who walk with heroes and I will never falter.

I am strong.

I am an army spouse.

2010 Fashion -Military

In my Opinion...People should really shut up about the ACU purses thing. I have not once seen a purse hurt someone. Nor I have seen people be hurt for looking upon someone who had a specific kind of purse.

So why is it such a big deal about Army Wives(or prior service women)to have one of these ACU purses?

Because people have nothing better to do with their time than to harp on a style. Yes, I know this is what the action is because at one time it was my job to harp on the latest styles and what was not in style. Guess what the sad thing is ladies, Military is in style for the year 2010. So harp on it being unattractive and ugly all you want but for the next month you still have to bear with it being the current fashion.

If you do not like this current trend, I would suggest you bury yourself in a hole for another month or just hold your tongue and ignore it. Cause no matter what you say, people are not going to put their lives on hold and what they like...just to make your day all sunshine and daisies.
