So I wanted to talk to you guys about something the military enlisted members of my family and their wives/girlfriends/kids do. Whenever one of them leaves for deployment or basic or anything like that the wife/girlfriend buys either a t-shirt or a mug of the state they are in with the heart trail so many of you have seen to where they are deploying. It’s a pretty normal thing and it’s great to have while they are gone, however, it’s when they get back that things get interesting.
Whenever that person returns from what they are doing, whether that is basic training or deployment, they take the shirt or mug and the couple destroys it. We smash the mug on the ground or burn the shirt together as a couple. We do this because now that we are done with that distance it is behind us and we conquered it. We get rid of the item to say “That’s over with and we kicked ass!”.
I just thought I would share this with you guys in case you guys would like to do the same thing. To me it just shows us the we got through that time together and now it’s in the past and if we made it through that distance we can make it through the next one :)
As always if you have any questions about this I would be happy to have a discussion with you :)

Interesting idea, I have to say!
Well, I didn’t embarrass myself too bad today
Until everyone was about to sit down and my head collided with the guy sitting in front of me so hard that I was left confused and surprised for several minutes. The guy almost knocked me out haha.@1 month ago
Simon gets his award today for airman of the quarter :D
He wants me to go and take pictures but I’m kinda nervous. The last time I went to support him in something I was the only civilian in the room and I could feel the radiating “awkward.”
Wish me luck that I don’t pass out from high doses of embarrassment. Lol.@1 month ago
When you and your SO are casually flirting over lunch like
And the tension is like
But then you remember they’re in uniform and have to go back to work
If anyone knows about the airmans attic on the air force bases, is it available for all military people or just Air Force families?…
if you have a dependent card you can get stuff there. Certain days and times are reserved for only active duty however to give them a chance to get stuff too during mostly lunch times I believe.@1 month ago with 1 note
