A Military Wive's Uniform by Sharrie Every morning, we get up and have to put on a uniform, just like you do. First, we wipe the tears off of our face, we can't let the children see them, because we are suppose to be strong and fearless. Then, we put our hair in a pony tail. Who has the time to spend an hour on our hair, when we have to be the mother and father? Next, comes the shirt, with yesterday's baby food, between Girl Scouts, football practice, and PTA, no time for laundry till thursday. Well, its time to sqeeze into the pants, that are two sizes too small, After all school is coming, and the kids clothes come first. Then, we ship off the package to you, with the comfort food that you, and all your friends wait for every month, chips, snack cakes, and cookies, we have to send enough for everyone. As we rush out the door to another full day, we wish we could keep you off our minds, for even an hour. We slip on those sandles, knowing that they are the only ones that sit by the door, anymore. Who has the time to tie their shoes? We run to our friend's side, when she finds out it will be another two months before her husband, finally gets to see the new little addition to the family. As we walk back in the door, at the end of the day, when the clothes come off, and before the pajamas go on, all we see is a real woman, a scared woman. We know that when we go to lie in bed, no matter how exhusted we are, there will be at least a couple of minutes that we notice, there is no one beside us. No one to turn to. We know that, tomorrow, when we wake up, we will have to put on our uniform, because we know that that uniform, is the only thing, that keeps us from falling apart. It is the only thing that keeps us together, for our kids, and for you.
1. I don't know how you do it. Well, guess what? In all honesty, I don't know how I do it either. I just do. Because really, what other choice do I have? 2. I could never deal with it if my husband was gone for that long. Hmmm...how does hearing how someone else can't deal with it help me to deal with it? And thats why your not a military wife! 3. Are you scared that something may happen to him while he's there? This one has always really perplexed me. Of course, I'm scared. I wouldn't be human if I wasn't. But being reminded of the fact that something may happen to him doesn't help me out. 4. Do you miss him? Every time I was asked this, I just wanted to respond "Oh, no, definitely not. I like it when he's gone. It gives me the chance to be all by myself 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Who wouldn't want that?" Of course, I miss him. Wouldn't you miss your husband? 5. I know just how you feel. My husband was on a business trip last month for three days and I just thought I would die. Are you kidding me? First, I barely notice now if my husband is only gone for three days. Second, unless his business trip was to a place where everyone is openly carrying a gun in the street trying to kill him and suicide bombers and roadside bombs are prevalent, its not remotely close to being the same. The only thing I may give you on this one is that you know what it's like to sleep in an empty bed. 6. Do you worry about him cheating on you? Or along the same lines...How can you go without sex for so long? Well, people, it is a little thing called self control. That and a love for my husband and respect for my marriage. Do some people cheat? Sure they do - both here in the states and overseas. But people cheat in civilian marriages too. Being in the military has no bearing on that. 7. How can you sleep at night knowing your husband is a murderer? Won't you be afraid when he comes home? This one sets me off more than any other. No soldier is a murderer. Have they had to kill someone? Quite possibly. But there are a great many soldiers who never have. It's not something they talk about in daily conversation. Regardless of what they do overseas, it does not make them a murderer. They are in a war zone and following orders. I have never once even had an inkling that I should be afraid of my husband because he is a soldier. 8. I'm so sorry your husband had to be deployed. Don't you just hate President Bush? My husband joined the military of his own free will knowing full well that he would probably be deployed. The President may be the one running the show, but my husband knew what he was getting into when he joined. I'm proud of him and his accomplishments. And FYI, I am one of the few that LOVE BUSH BITCH!!! 9. If you truly supported your husband, you would be protesting so..he wouldn't have to deploy again/could be brought home/the war would end. Really? My definition of support must be much different than the definition of support by these people. Supporting my husband means supporting him in what he does and what he believes in. It does not mean disrespecting the men and women who volunteered to defend our country and our rights. If it weren't for them, I wouldn't have the right to protest in the first place. I'm certainly not putting myself in a position where it could be construed as anything other than 100% support for our troops and their families. **one more FYI When I see the protestors I go home and get a flag an on the other side of the street I wave it high & proud with my sign that says SUPPORT YOUR TROOPS! You go over there and put a frigen flower in the bad guys hand and see what happens to you! 10. I can't believe your husband did this to you. Aren't you mad at him? Um, what?! My husband didn't do anything to me. He honors his agreements and he follows the orders of his superiors. There's certainly nothing sad or maddening about having a husband who fulfills his commitments. Don't feel sorry for me. I'm proud of my husband and I completely support him.
