So this morning I got a nice surprise, a phone call from my husband! Ryan has been out at sea all week and all communication had been dropped in order to do what ever they were out there to do. He told me that they had pulled back into port early this morning but were not letting anyone off the ship yet.
Hopefully around noon I will get my husband back and that will be one of the last times he steps foot on the USS John C. Stennis! No more duty days, no more watch bills he has to stand, no more year long DEPLOYMENTS, no more months long underways! I am so excited for him and I to transfer... New York is going to be a good place for us at this stage in our lives.
I guess when I fell in love with a military man I signed up for the military myself. I am one of the Silent Ranks... Although I do not carry a weapon or wear combat boots I myself serve our country by standing behind and supporting my husband. I would have never thought in a million years that I would serve my country. Although I have a lot of pride for our country... I still wouldn't have seen this coming. But I wouldn't have it any other way... I am proud to say that I stand among the silent ranks.
Thanks for listening.
