Neat stuff!!

So, for all of you who have a loved one stationed somewhere else around the world this holiday season, I wanted to share this little bit of information with you!

If you go to Stripes, which is a military newspaper publication found on many posts and bases throughout the world (including to areas where our military is deployed), you can send a holiday greeting to your loved one for free! You can even send one to a friend or to a unit. (unlimited!)

Just go to and click on the link at the top right hand corner. From there click "Send a message" and it's a piece of cake! I sent one for Thanksgiving and one for Christmas last year when Sgt. was deployed - just another way to get out the "I miss you and I'm thinking of you"'s so check that out!


In other news Sgt. is heading out to the field this weekend. He's been busy helping prepare his class for that. The mentor roll is something he really enjoys - listening to him talk about his guys, how they've improved, what they're starting to understand - makes me happy :). It's feels good knowing he's not miserable or hating something he's committed to.

Sorry, I know this blog is kind of empty with content. I'm working on a post it's just not flowing yet... hopefully tomorrow. Hope everyone has a great evening!
