NIM & the Silent Ranks
One of the cool things we got to do while D's parents were here for his Officer Candidate School Graduation was go to the National Infantry Museum. If you ever have the opportunity to go I would highly recommend it. I am usually not one for museums- I have the patience level of a toddler when it comes to these things- but even I really thought this was interesting. Below are some pictures from the museum.
FYI for readers: You may have noticed a subtle shift in the blog- less talk about running more talk about life. This may or may not continue. Being back in the military as a military spouse is interesting and I want to share a bit about what life in the 'silent ranks' is like. What are the silent ranks? Military families. It is a different kind of life than many people lead and I am excited to be part of it again. D and I had a run for a few years while he was enlisted, a few years break and now we are back in so it is a learning experience to get used to it again. Many things have changed and some have stayed the same. And when I say we are back in it really is we. While I might not wear a uniform, if your spouse is in the military you are too. I hope you will continue to share the ride with me as I continue to plod along!
