NEARLY THREE YEARS

You know, I talk a good talk about our family's role in the GWOT, but I know we haven't even begun to sacrifice. My husband's been gone once, over two years ago. I had no one to worry about but myself, and I lived on the most supportive post in the military. My husband is almost certainly guaranteed to get a piece of the action in his new unit, but for a long time now I really have been a chairborne war cheerleader.

I'm a few days late in noticing this news, but Butterfly Wife's husband has volunteered to stay for another rotation in Iraq. Without coming home in between. I don't even know how his sanity can handle that, but I guess his pseudonym isn't Jack Bauer for nothin'.

Many days I feel like the country has gone completely bonkers, but then I remember that there really are people of such high caliber around me. What can we even say to this butterfly family except thank you...and you rule.

1 Thanks Sarah. I know that I could not do this without the support of people like you. That's for sure. Oh, and I like the idea of "Butterfly Family." Jack Bauer has changed a lot too as you might imagine. Thanks again for the support. It is definitely helping me to keep going.

2 Hey Sara, I too have fallen into the armchair military spouse position. Now that a deployment is pending, I feel like a boob. I had better get my game face on and get ready for the real deal. God bless all that are in the game 24/7.
