************ The Military wife ***********
She never signed a contract nor swore an oath that bound her to the military service, but she is. She moves from military base to military base whenever orders are issued ….. Yet, these orders never bear her name.
Neither civilian nor military member, her breed is a unique blend of both worlds, enjoying the benefits and the pitfalls of each, ….. She is the military wife.
She has probably lived in places like Korea, Germany, Alaska, Hawaii and Japan, …. And at least 5 of the fifty states, and chances are she has traveled many more.
Her wardrobe consist of out of fashion but practical clothes. The money she has to live on and support her family is never enough. Her children wear hand-me-down clothing and they eat a lot of hamburger helper. Her work day is sometimes longer than her husbands. But she never complains .. Who would listen ?
Her world is a difficult world …. Torn between duty, home and country. She often misses out on the creature comforts that her non-military sisters enjoy. When those comforts do come, invariably the military will spirit her away from them in the blinking of an eye.
Her husband holds a 24 hour job, although most duty days are not that long. His obligations take him away from her and her children for as long as a week to several months and sometimes even longer. In his absence she becomes both mother and father, as well as head of household and disciplinarian.
Besides the usual shopping, cooking and the myriad of daily chores, she becomes the liaison between school, military, community and home.
The military wife is an extraordinary creature, deserving the same love, honor and respect as her military husband, but she rarely gets it… Instead she is exempted from the simple things like PTA, Little league, Scouting and social functions that other women take for granted. Not because she is disliked, but because she is unknown.
Isolated from family and home town friends, she is on her own, and when things go bad, there is no one to turn too … Except you ……………..
