Wednesday Hero

I got this idea from rightwingedrightminded blog and thought it was a great idea! I was going to do my usual wordless Wednesday but since my daddy just left for Iraq a few days ago I thought it was right to do this instead.

My dad joined the army in 1988 when I was 8 and in the 4th grade. It was a very difficult change for me and I caused nothing but havoc when we moved. I didn't get along with most of my new peers and my teacher made it clear she didn't like me from the start. We lived in a craphole trailer in Leesville, LA and I hated it. I was so glad when we moved closer although the house wasn't much better I at least had my own room this time! When we finally moved into military housing it was a breath of fresh air! The housing was brand new and I had my own space and it was wonderful! Ft. Polk, I was told, has changed a lot since I lived there but all I know is that that area is very run down and just a craphole!

But I'm not going to tell you my whole life as an army brat but I will tell you that my daddy is one of my heroes (next to hubby of course!) and I can tell you straight up I am a daddy's girl...although not as much as my sister but I know he loves us both equally. This blog is dedicated to my dad who has been to the Gulf War in the early 90's and was in Iraq a couple years ago and now again.

I love you daddy!

Born and raised an Army brat. Godspeed and good luck to your father! Best of wishes to him to come home safely...and prayers to you as well. Excellent idea for a post!
