My name is Laura and my husband of 20 years is active Army and we are currently stationed at Fort Lee, VA.  I am 46 with two grown kids and a grandbaby that I love dearly and miss very much.  I am disabled and some days can't leave the house so I am hoping this forum will be a nice way to pass time on those days and maybe make some new friends.  We have gone thur 4 deployments in 10 years so I can relate to missing your spouse, dealing with lonliness and having to do it all on your own.

Yes I am in Va. This is our home state and the state we came back to when hubby got out of active duty. He is a reservist now though. We lived in Cali and I always saud I missed the weathee from Va but since we have been back all I want now is the weather we had out in Cali.. lol

I have lived in CA too, but I have to admit, I like it out here much better than the west coast.  Peolple are nicer and things don't seem as important as the people themselves, if that makes any sense.  Are you glad he is out of active duty?  We have a few more years to go, he has only been active for 12 years, but has prior service too.
