June 18th

Today, we celebrate four years in the Army. June 18th, 2008, Brandon officially started his Army job after being commissioned a few weeks before. We had just returned from our honeymoon to Mexico and he was off again to spend a couple months in Washington. Army life, right?

Exactly a year after his start date, Brandon was graduating IBOLC, a 2LT about to start his journey in the Infantry. We were in Georgia, living the life, and a couple months later we were moving back to Hawaii.

And exactly a year ago today, Brandon came home from Iraq.

Has it really been a year? Holy moly. I feel like the entire deployment was such a blur and suddenly here we are, a year out, a 6 month old in our arms, living in Alabama while Brandon attends flight school as a warrant officer. Wow.

It's funny how so many things can fall on June 18th. This year is more laid-back, which is nice. Maybe next year he'll be graduating flight school on this date? Only time will tell.


  1. Heres to more years in this crazy life!!! and hopefully no deployments ANY time soon!!

  2. If he graduates flight school (especially in 64s) in under a year, things have definitely changed!
