It goes without saying how much I miss my husband, Godfrey. The 5 months away from my children(Rachel too) has not been easy. The times spent away from my brothers and sisters at ski weekend and opening the cottage was an outer body experience, none of these I prefer to repeat.
The CENTCOM area of operation in SWA is a stark difference then what I’ve grown to appreciate about EUCOM. The above picture is life as we know it in CENTCOM and below is EUCOM. I miss the “together strong” of EUCOM. The picture of us in Austria brings back memories of long 12 hours working days/nights, but always given a couple days to see the sights and raise a glass. Here I work seven days and don’t have much time off except a few hours in the morning on Friday. This makes it difficult to respond back to people on an individual bases, however, I read them all. Thanks for your posts from, husband and brothers and sisters, friends, BUHS staff, Libardoni’s, EUCOM, T&R staff, Cor @ BCTV, house call for planting flowers, flip videos from Newfane, Dummerston School and HS, Women’s hockey team multiple care packages. It keeps me going and takes some of the edge off being away from my family and far from the shores of home. I miss you all And can’t thank you enough for letters, care packages, videos, music and emails. Please stop by and visit me August 3rd 4-9pm potluck at our house during my one week home (second week will be with family in Maine and RI). It would be my honor to have you all there and thank you in person for your help to my family or support to a soldier stationed one year in Kabul Afghanistan. I need this day with you to carry me through the next half of my deployment!
