    My cousins husband is in the Army and they (the Army) are flying the wives out to Los Angeles, paying their hotel, and doing I-don't-know-what for them in honor of Military Spouses Day. YAY REAGAN! . . . I miss him.

    Wonder why I never knew about this? My DH made the military his career. After 22.5 yrs active duty, he retired and has now occupied the same position as an Air Force civil service employee for 27.5 years. We've been married for nearly 30 of those years. I'm going to have to beat him with a wet noodle. LOL emoticon emoticon

    It is NOT easy being on the other end of defense. I applaud those who keep home and family going while their vet works for us and our safety!!!
