This is my first deployment with him!  Looking for a little guidance and support here. :)

My name is Trica, long Cafemom member.
My dad was army, I was born in Fort Knox,KY. My dad got stationed at Fort Lewis and Tacoma is where we stayed. I met my husband who was stationed at McChord, AD Air Force. Eventually he got stationed at Tyndall,AFB and then Keesler,AFB. At Keesler He decided to go civilian and he went into the reserves. We made our way back to WA. he ended up retiring from the reserves. After 1 4yrs doing IT for the Air Force he moved over to the army a year ago.
I'm a SAHM currently. Been enjoying it.

Hello! My name is Bobbie! I'm the spouse of a service member. His name is Robert and he's in the Army Reserves. His MOS is satellite communications. He's on his second year. So far we haven't been stationed, though his base is the Tobyhanna Army Depot in PA.

Hey! I'm not necesarily new but I haven't spent much time here in Cafe Mom, however my life just took a serious turn and I need to know what's up! :)

Both of my parents served in the Army as well as my FIL, and as of today my husband is sworn in to the Air Force!

I haven't been stationed anywhere, we're just starting our journey here and I'm nervous and doing every bit of research I can on how to be the most supportive I can be.

We have an 8 month old daughter and that's all :)

I like hoarding cloth diapers in my free time, as well as indulging an obsession with zombies, going hiking, playing video games, baking and birdwatching.
