Millitary?

I'm a complete military brat (my fathers in the Cost Guard) and I was wondering if anyone else has parents in the military. Actually there are quite a few adults on here so there's probably a few of you in it yourselves or has a spouse in it. So what branch is everyone associated with?

I love the fact that my dads in the military and we get to live in some amazing places, but moving every two years does have its downfalls when it comes to horses.

In the early days of the Indian Territory, there were no such things as birth certificates. You being there was certificate enough. -Will rogers

Yup, my husband is in the Marine Corps. :) However, we don't move every two years. We've only moved from Michigan to California and now to North Carolina. We probably won't be moving anymore.

A friend of mine had a parent in the military. They did a lot of moving and found the hardest thing for him was changing schools growing up.

You are lucky to be into horses, it's a true blessing :)

The military can make it hard to hold onto the things you love... especially horses. My husband is in Navy. We're moving clear across country to our new station in 2 months.... driving from Virginia to California. It's going to be a doozie.

I just did the opposite, California to North Carolina!

Hubby and I were both Army. We are both out now but back over here in Iraq as civilians. We both miss it, but then we think of all the BS and realize how much we don't! LOL
Hopefully we'll be home the end of this year for good and we will finally be set in life, right where we want to be :) Surrounded by horses and cows!

Some days it's not worth chewing through the straps.
