While it was nice to hear someone saying kind things about how I've done my best to support my wife in her career, I was struck by a few thoughts that I thought perhaps he hadn't considered. I'd like to share them with you.
While it's true that many in the civilian community don't understand the challenges that we face, if our roles were reversed I don't think they'd be any less supportive than we are. Yes, we understand that we are also serving our country when we give up our careers and move all over the country so that our spouses can answer our nation's call. But I believe it's more than that. We act out of more than just service and willingness to sacrifice. We act out of love.
Here's the thing: I'm not alone in this. I'm putting this all in writing here on my blog, but I'm far from the only one who feels this way. As military spouses, we set aside everything because we love our service member. It's just what we do. And it won't ever change.
