I love this story because it could happen.
How often have we done something so stupid only to have it compounded by something else that we are blindsided by? It's easy to say that all military members are whores... but really... this could happen to anyone. The realism and heart break is what makes this story great! It also reminds us how precious life is... and how we must own up to our mistakes... even if we wish we could go back and change things... it is our mistakes that shape us... and help make us who we are. We make mistakes as humans... but it's the lessons we learn from them that make all the difference.
Thanks Patricia51!!! I love your stuff. Totally worth 5 *****'s.... actually... this on I'd give 10 if I could!!!
Hope those who read this had lots of tissues! I know I needed them.
As a combat vet, this story had me reliving the fears, courage, loyalty, and temptations all these people faced. Thanks for what was for me a fully-feeling memory of a time in my life I never will (or want to) forget.
This story isn't just fiction. Sadly, it's happening every day. As a young guy in the military, the only line I drew as far as women was to NEVER play around with any married woman. Not just military wives, all wives. I've always hated cheating, and think guys that do go after married women are just as scummy as the women. Not more, not less. Scum is scum.
All people who cheat on their spouses in the military should be shot. Defending our country is noble and disrespecting your spouse who puts their life on the line is despicable. This tale shows consequences involved.
simply do NOT understand what the South Asian conflicts have done and are doing to our Army. About a year ago I heard an NPR interview with an SF Major headed back for his....13th tour!
Once again, your empathetic writing style is simply amazing. Thank you for sharing with us.
I saw this happen many times during my 26 years in the military. Having to notify a spouse of a death is only second to having to notify the parents of the death of a young child! The notifications are heartbreaking to everyone involved. My heart goes out to the clergy and notification teams.
I have no sympathy for the cheaters. Some cheaters get what they deserve.
Thank you for sharing this story!
very good, more than very good. US Army Retired.
I figured out the biggest sluts in the world are the civilian wives of active duty military men.
In order: Marine wives, Navy wives, Army wives and then Air Force wives. So no one should be surprised at this story.
Patty, you got that right. Old USN here with a CPO Grandson. Good story. Cheers! P.S. Love your bio art! LOL!
I wish my first wife had read this before she left me. I wasn't even on a cruise yet. Saw a lot and much was like both of them, weather they wanted to cheat or just caught up in the excitement, it still hurt. I retired as a CPO and know both sides. It hurt me and the Navy. Best story I have read in years. Thank You.
Bless those put in harms way. Give courage to those left behind. Cheers!
Military life introduces a whole new set of challenges for a marriage. Decent people still do not cheat. Scum use the long periods of separation as an excuse for every kind of bad behavior including cheating. Just because a person serves in the military, it does not make them a saint, and it certainly does not make their spouse a saint either.
when in training my fiancé wrote me a letter telling me she was going on dates, everyone was surprised I dropped her
True story-a young wife and mother was devoted to her army husband. He was sergeant station in texas. Before his first tour in iraq she confessed to him some things she did long before they were married. She probably should not have done so but she felt guilty having kept it from him and she might not see him again. During their marriage he always treated her in a condescending manner. Truth is he was verbally and emotionally abusive.
While in iraq he engaged in numerous affairs including some with thos subordinate to him.
She could have had his stripes but she stoppef the charges.
That apple, the sergeant, didn't fall far from his mother's tree.
She is on her 3rd husband and has had numerous affairs.

He's an asshole, but I can almost feel sorry for Lt. Hall.
The amount of guilt that he's going to be carrying around, it may be deserved, but still...
