New Members

I am new to the whole blogging thing. My purpose for creating this wat to give wife's a safe place to talk about life as a military spouse. Please feel free to comment or post questions about anything. This is one way I felt we could come together because we all know how hard it is to be a Marine wife. Look forward to hearing from you.

Family Readiness

My experience as a Family Readiness Volunteer was great until yesterday (03-19-09). It was brought to my husbands attention by his Ssgt that I was to out spoken about the longer hours they have been working and that one of the wife's went to the CO and said I made inappropriate comments about him ( CO). This is all untrue, but it was a reality I had to face. Wife's can be caddy, snippy, clickish, and done right mean; when they feel that someone is trying to "over step there bounds," which by the way I didn't. My husband leaves for Afganistan in 7 weeks and for me this is all so highschool. I am 34 years old and I refuse to let my character be attacked by a group of wife's who have nothing better to do than gossip and spread lies. Deployments are hard for all of us, I don't know why we all can't get along. Why do a few wife's have to make the rest of us suffer? Why doesn't somebody put a stop to this ridiculous behavior? Family readiness is for the families, but it is wife's like this, whom make me not want anything to do with Marine Corp wife's. I know I am not the first wife to experience this situation. I wanted to start this blog to hear of other's experiences. I needed to vent!! My husband stood up for me 100%, that just the kind of husband he is, he knows I would have never done such a thing.
