Have Tricare? Check Your Payment Type

Posted by Hallee on Aug 11, 2014 in Life

Why is that? Why are there no exceptions? Why is the military’s insurance company mandated to harm the military its supposed to serve?

What Veterans’ Day Means to Me

Posted by Hallee on Nov 11, 2012 in Family, Life

I love this country. It is truly the greatest country on earth, with so much promise and potential. I get annoyed a lot of times at gluttony, greed, laziness, entitlement, etc., and I sometimes forget and let those feelings overshadow the fact that there is so much good here, so much hard work that built this land — that we live in a land that people actually die trying to get to.

I am so proud of the military legacy of my family. I pray that my sons continue it, and continue to fight for and stand for America. Here is my annual “What Veteran’ Day Means to Me” posting of the honor of my family’s service to our country:

A Volunteer Force

Posted by Hallee on Sep 11, 2011 in Family, Life

Think about this for a moment: Every single person in today’s military is a volunteer. And every single person there has either joined or extended their contract during war time. We are coming up on the ten year anniversary of the terrorist attacks of 9-11, and we have been at war for almost ten years.

Surviving Separation: Abiding

Posted by Hallee on Mar 10, 2011 in Christian Faith, Family, Holy matrimony, Love, Marriage, Surviving separation

My dad said that in his career he saw a pattern. The spouse leaves, and the spouse left behind creates a whole new life. Part of it is a defense against loneliness. Part of it is a way to make time go by faster. But, new jobs, new hobbies, new schedules open the door to new friends, new intimate circles, and more often than people will admit, new lovers or friends of the opposite sex. This creates a whole new life of which the absent spouse is not a part, and when he or she returns, isn’t necessarily welcome.

The Power of a Praying Wife: Chapter 19 – His Past

Posted by Hallee on Jan 29, 2011 in Christian Faith, Holy matrimony, Marriage, Prayer, Praying Wife

Gregg and I were married when he was 34. In those 34 years leading up to meeting me, he had buried his mother, graduated high school, fought in a war, got out of the military, attended three colleges, obtained 30 professional certifications, started a career, gotten married, gotten divorced, and lived another five years dating and working and existing.

Long story short, he’d lived thirty-four years.

Roller Coaster Rides

Posted by Hallee on Aug 16, 2010 in Christian Faith, Love, Marriage, Prayer

My friend, Ann Marie, at Household6Diva wrote an amazing post a couple of days ago. It made me cry. Gregg goes back Friday, which accounts for some of the emotions I’m sure.
