I’ve often wondered what it is like to be a deployed soldier serving overseas. I know there is a lot of variety, just as there is in any job, but I also know that it’s different than what many of us recognize as normal. A good friend of my husband’s just deployed and it got me to wondering again what it’s like. Well, now and again I hear stories. But I’ve found blogs, by the soldiers themselves, are often the best; I haven’t run across many of those. But, if you’ve been wondering, like me, what it’s like, here is a few random glimpses into their lives.
