We hear about the lives and sacrifices that our men and women make in the military, but do we really know the deep stories that go on in their homes? There are many families that travel with our brave soldiers and live wherever they are asked to live. Here are 10 stories about love, pain, worry, commitment, and true blue emotions that take place in households around the world so you and I, civilians of the United States, can live peacefully.
Please take the time and visit these blogs, starting from our first place Military Mom of the Year, Lashon Campbell, creator of My Crazy Life as a Navy Wife.
Lashon Campbell started her blog in 2011 when did a PCS move to Guantanamo bay Cuba. She and her husband knew this duty station would be a difficult one so her husband Patrick encouraged her to start writing her blog. Her goal was to provide a positive place where military spouses can come together and discuss issues affecting their everyday lives.
Since then, My Crazy Life as a Navy Wife has been Lashon’s passion. She tries to cover her life as a veteran, mother, and military spouse in a way that emphasizes their faith in God. Her 3 kids are her inspiration. They are always encouraging her to write, which is something she has become very grateful for.
