Welcome Home!!

As some of you may know, my husband has been deployed with the 317th Airlift Group for the past four months. This was our first deployment and a learning experience for both of us. The day he left was pretty awful and I must admit, I haven't cried like that since I moved away from my family.

Although deployments are challenging, they are a chance to grow and become more independent. Let me tell you, we faced our share of inconveniences over the past several months. As you probably remember from past blogs, I had to deal with everything from the car not starting to moving our belongings to a new residence.

It wasn't long ago that I didn't know whether or not I could handle being alone and holding down the fort here in Abilene. It was tough at times but now, I can honestly say I am a stronger and more independent person than I was before.

I am very proud of our men and women here at Dyess and of what they accomplished over the last four months. Also, I am proud of the families who stayed behind and took care of things on the home front.

I would like to thank all of the wonderful people who supported me during this process. My family back home, my KRBC/KTAB family and my fellow military spouses all made this experience easier and I love you all very much!
