I had heard a comment recently, that an Army Wife is a real Army Wife if she doesn’t go to her home state during her husband’s deployment, and stays living on or near the Post from which her husband has deployed from.
Again, a thought that never crossed my mind. I had generally considered all Army Wives real Army Wives…you know, so long as we love our husbands, do NOT cheat on them, and do what we can for them. Does our geographical location as it relates to our husbands’ Post of Duty really qualify us as a “real” Army Wife or not?
I don’t think it does. And it’s not just because I am going back to my home state. I’m an Army Wife wherever I am. I am forever faithful to my husband, which state I am doesn’t matter. That’s what makes me a real Army Wife…I love my husband, I am forever faithful to my husband, and I am forever supportive of my husband.
What do you think? What makes an Army Wife a “real” Army Wife?
