    For all of the military nuts/wives out there...

    You might be a military wife if... can unpack a house and have everything in place in 48 hours string concertina wire to keep the neighbor's kids out of your
    flower beds

    ...your husband's work and dress clothes cost more than yours do've changed more oil and mowed more lawns than your husband
    because he's never there to do it himself use a crook-neck flashlight with a red lens during power outages because it's the only one you can ever find in the house

    ...your children say "hoo ah" or "roger that" instead of "ok" know that it's normal to light shoe polish on fire and that the best way to spit-shine boots is with cotton balls, and rubbing alcohol

    ...your husband does a route recon and takes a GPS for a trip to the mall only write in pencil because EVERYTHING is subject to change need a translator to talk to your civilian friends, only because they have no idea what DFAS, AER, TDY, ACS, NPD, PCS, BX/PX, MCSS, and ETS
    mean have a larger selection of curtains than Wal-Mart does can remember where you kept the Scotch tape in your last house, but unfortunately, not in this one mark time in duty stations, not years refer to friends not only by name but by the state that they live in know that "back home" doesn't mean at the house you live in now tear up when you hear "Proud to Be An American," even though you've heard it 50 times by now know that a 2 month separation IS short, no matter what your civilian friends say ALWAYS know when payday is and get ticked off if there are more than 2 weekends during that pay period know better than to go to the PX or commissary between 11:30 and 1:30 unless it's a life or death emergency show your military ID to the greeter at Wal-Mart know that any reference to "sand" or a "box" describes NTC at Ft. Irwin, not your kid's backyard toys know that "Ft. Puke"is Ft. Polk , Ft Hell is Ft Hood, And Ft. Regret is a completely accurate description of Ft. Riley have enough camouflage in your house to wallpaper the White House don't have to think about what time 21:30 is've ever been referred to as "Household 6"'re the TC, not a backseat driver

    ...You know which MRE'S that the M&M's and TOOTSIE ROLLS are in! can't remember the last time you saw a doctor who wasn't wearing Class B's or BDUs've ever had a pet named Scout, Ranger or Sergeant

    ...the local dry cleaner knows you by your first name only cost you $25 to have a child find that a large number of your clothes and household items are olivedrab or loam, even though you never planned it that way pick apart uniforms on TV and in the movies, even though you used to yell at your husband for doing the same thing know what "pogey bait" is and which kinds everyone in your husband's platoon prefers wish you could go to CIF to DX your old stuff like your husband can've learned to sleep through the sounds of tanks, planes, helicopters and artillery simulators give your kids a hand receipt when they take your Tupperware to school can hate military life but be terrified to leave it all in the same breath defend your lifestyle no matter how bad things get because you know there's no other life for you!

    Oh my, some of those are just WAY too close to the truth. When I have more time, I'll point out my favorites.

    Thanks for the laugh. :D
