Saw this quiz on a blog post from fellow Army Wife Mrs.Krista Koons from, Life Is The Messy Bits who in turn got it from Janey's Favorite Things it's a super fun little Military Spouse Quiz (makes me miss the Myspace days I swear) seeing as in about 2 1/2 weeks I will no longer be an active duty Military Wife but the wife of a seasoned Army veteran I should take this opportunity while I can ;)
The MilSpouse Quiz

Lol but about 4 months after we were married and before he deployed we were visiting his home in Arkansas and he got me another ring and got down on one knee right by the river on a BEAUTIFUL warm night there was a full moon and everything and said the sweetest things and asked me to please stay married to him ;) ...I said yes...♥

25. Do you support your spouse as a member of the military? Yes, I support all military members. And i support my husband in everything he does. I started a military wife support group, but if he was a janitor I would've started a Janitor's wife support group.
