Project Main Details
A salute will always hold respect. And if it’s presented wrong, that poor kid can expect the full weight of a proper lesson.
One stripe or multiple stars, it doesn’t matter, you are part of something bigger than yourself.
The traditions may differ, but they’re all forged from the same place of honor.
His patch is different than hers. But why they wear it is the same.
No matter if they are married to a one striper, NCO, or an officer – a military spouse knows a PCS comes with headaches. Packing up, leaving friends, telling the kids to “embrace the suck, and go make a friend.”
We deploy to different posts, to do different jobs, but we leave behind families that need the same basic things.
If we see someone in a dress uniform standing with a Chaplin at a neighbor’s front door, a group of spouses will soon follow.
Skype calls from bases, aboard ships, from places we can’t pronounce on the other side of the planet are precious minutes. And when the line goes dead tears are shed on both ends.
We can make fun of every other service. Sometimes even our own. But God help anyone outside of our brotherhood who thinks they can get away with it.
We teach our kids, when the flag goes up or comes down you stop and stand tall.
We learn to pack only what is needed for the next move (and those moves come more often than we want). We sell, donate or leave what’s left to those staying behind. Any furniture, clothes, toys, are gladly accepted. Not only because it’s needed now, but we know someone else down the road will need it too.
We know what the other family is going through so we look out for each other, pull each out out of jams, give when we have something to give.
The spouses who have “been there and done that” teach the younger ones what to expect… how to cut corners…make ends meet… and how to deal with being “in the military”. These veterans help navigate deployments, waiting for back pay, moving through the chain of command. They help new spouses get through fathers that will miss births, first steps and having one less parent there on Christmas morning.
No matter which uniform we put on we do it proudly because we are all part of the tribe. United by duty. Fiercely proud of our spouses, and what they go through.
MIlTribe dot com – a safe, secure way for current and prior military families to buy, sell and trade with trust. Built by those who understand life in the tribe.
