My husband is a contract serviceman. When I got married, I knew my life would not be easy. I wouldn’t be carefree like others. But what attracted me was that I had a devoted husband. All my life I waited and prayed. I had a child and raised with the same stresses and worries.
There was time when I was frustrated, I said, ”when are you going to retire already”. I couldn’t take it.
My whole life has been on the fringes. I said, ”you love your soldiers and your country more than you love me and your child”. He said ”you don’t understand that family starts with the homeland. And the love I have for you makes me love and protect the homeland for you”.
