How Do They Do It? My insights on military service
“Oh, I admire you so much because I just couldn’t do it”
Words that I heard many, many times through my many moves, deployment, and separations from hubby as a military spouse.
But you want to know a little secret? I never thought I could do it either. That’s the funny thing about serving our country–many of the toughest parts of it you just really don’t think you can do, but then, somehow, you go ahead and do them anyways.
That’s because when you love something or someone–really love them–it’s worth the sacrifice.
It’s worth the late nights and early mornings. The tearful goodbyes and the constant moves. The danger, the drama, the mundane.
Serving our country whether it’s active duty or in the role of a military family is definitely not for the faint of heart. However, the people in it and their spouses aren’t really any different than you. They don’t serve because somehow any of it is easier on them, and they’re not somehow stronger than you are. They do it because they love each other, and because they love their country.
But perhaps, after all, that does make it just a little bit better.
