Graduated from the United States Military in 1991 and served in the Army for six years (Hooah!). Married since 1993 to an Army officer (Hooah!). We have two boys â€“ 10 and 8 years old. The oldest is in fourth grade and heâ€™s on his fourth school (Hooah!). My parents are German (hence the German name), but I was born in the United States. Since I joined the military I have lived in New York, Arizona, Panama, Maryland, North Carolina, Alabama, Texas, Georgia and now Virginia (near D.C.) â€“ Hooah!
I started blogging a few months ago and have been hooked every since. I like a forum where you can express your ideas and debate important issues. I try to keep an open mind. I think itâ€™s important to respect others, even if they disagree with me.
My husband is on his second deployment to Iraq in two years. It has gotten both easier and more difficult, if that makes any sense.
I want to thank Greta for trusting me with her blog. Our friendship (after living apart now for almost five years) is a testament to the connections one finds in the military community and the life of a military spouse. Thanks, Greta â€“ and Hooah!
