The Real Army Wives Series
The next e-book I am working on is the dramatic story of my first year as a Real Army Wife.
It was the year I turned 22, I left everyone I knew, and moved 15 hours away to the great land of…..Texas, but one year into my marriage, and I had only seen my husband for a whopping 3 of those months.
It was the War on Terrorism in the days of its infancy, 2002-2003. My husband went to Iraq, and they gave us no indication of when they would return home.
We’ve all had moments that defined us. That year was a life-changing year for me and the ladies I weathered the deployment with, the Real Army Wives.
I’m posting this story one chapter at a time, every Monday, on my blog. I hope you will check it out.
