Let's get this board hopping!

I would LOVE for this board to come alive! Let's face it, if you or a loved one aren't in the military, you just can't understand. I know I didn't. So let's support each other and have fun Disers! What do you say?

Okay, I'll try. DH is almost officially retired from the Air Force after 30 years. We have lived all over the place, but I went to college in Orlando (good old U Can't Finish) and have been a Disney addict ever since. We are currently in the process of moving to Tulsa for the post-retirement job. Who else is lurking about?

Army wife here! DH is in the Guard, so according to some it doesn't count However the deployment we somewhat recently survived says differently I think

Thanks to everyone for their service (and the Guard most certainly counts!).

Active Duty Army family here. DH has 17 years in so far and is currently deployed. Counting the days until retirement!

My husband is Army National Guard. Anyone who thinks that isn't really military is sadly mistaken, especially in light of the fact that many soldiers with multiple tours in Iraq and Afghanistan are Guard. He's been in almost 6 years and between BCT, AIT, and a year in Kuwait he's been gone about 1/2 or our marriage. When he got back from AIT we went to Disney for 2 weeks (1 wk in GF thanks to the first military promotion!) and have a 2 year old to prove it, lol.

DH is prior Active Duty Army (3 years) and is currently Army Reserves with 10 years, trying to get his reenlistment papers done. He would like to switch to National Guard, but can't do anything until he can sign his reenlistment papers...gotta love the Army, hurry up and wait!

I have had the pleasure of meeting and spending time with ClarabellCowFan and her wonderful family...We miss you guys (I know you don't miss it here)

GO ARMY!! We are an active duty family stuck in the outer layer of hell also known as Ft. Bliss. Don't let the name fool you. I'm guessing Army PR wouldn't name it Fort Dusty and Brown.

My husband just hit year 16 in the army and supposed to be pinning on another rocker soon, hopefully. I'm so proud of him and our relationship. It is not easy to maintain a marriage when married to a soldier.

My husband is TDY right now prepping for his 5th year long deployment. December is our 10th anniversary. He has been gone easily more than half our marriage. Last year was the most time we ever spent together consecutively and that was 8 months. I told him by month 8 he needed to go somewhere out of my hair. I didn't know what to do with him at home.

I feel the same way, lovemygoofy. Our 2 year old was 6 months old when he left. I'm a stay at home mom and we had a routine. My husband comes home to a full fledged toddler. He's been back almost a year now and it still feels weird!

Miss you guys too, Suzanne, but you are correct - we do NOT miss anything about Benning or Georgia!

Congrats to Matt!

Yuck to the deployment. Maybe he and B will be neighbors.

First time I see this board! Another Army wife here. Dh has been in 12 yrs. Only 8 until retirement! He will be home from his 6th deployment (5th to Afghanistan) in a matter of days. Seems the older the children get, the worst the deployments get.

I'm less than 2 months away from being retired AF after 21 years. Once I'm out, I'll probably be on DIS more than I am now.
