Two years ago yesterday, D was sworn into the National Guard. It’s fun to think about how our lives have changed since then. Back then, we weren’t married. In fact, I had told D the night before he enlisted that I wanted to take a break from our relationship to figure out what I wanted from it.
However, here we are, two years later. We are married. D is in law school, studying to become a JAG. He will hopefully contract with the ROTC officially in a few months. I have become a lot more comfortable in my role as a military wife. Something that was difficult for me at first has become something that I am proud of.
I’m proud of D for all his hard work. I am proud of and I support him in his desire to serve his country. I love him for it. I look forward to another two years and more of this life as a military family.
