MilSpouse Friday Fill-In #30

1. What is your favorite MilSpouse blog (not including Wife of a Sailor who we all love, or your own)? submitted by Our Crazy Life 
Just like I'm sure most of you are going to say, there are too many great ones to pick just one.  I'm thinking of putting some in my sidebar soon.  I'll definitely start with my real life MilSpouse friends because they are awesome.  So check back when I stop being lazy! ;D  Let me know if you'd like to be on my blogroll too!

2. What are your favorite perks about your s/o being deployed (we all know there are perks)? submitted by Ramblings of a Marine Wife
*We save LOTS of money that we probably wouldn't otherwise.  
*Deployment is like a great class in learning how to communicate better with your spouse.  Since you only have short periods of time to talk/write, you make sure you say the important stuff and always end with an I love you.  We should be like that more often and deployments are a reminder.  
*Is there anything better than getting a homecoming?  It's like a new honeymoon period all over again. Most people don't get to experience that more than once.  

3. How long did you date your before getting engaged? Married? submitted by Utterly Chaotic
We got engaged after dating about 1.5 years.  We started dating the very beginning of Sophomore year of college.  He proposed at his military ball the end of our Junior year.  We were married after dating a little more than 2.5 years and less than a month after our college graduation.  

4. What do you think your would do if s/he wasn’t in the military? submitted by Adventures of M-Squared
He may have gone to law school, or maybe he'd be teaching history.  Our life sure would be different; the military has been part of our life since we started dating in college.  I can't imagine our life without it.  

5. If you could talk to the Secretary of (fill in your appropriate branch) what is one suggestion you would like to bring to their attention in order to improve the lives of military families?  submitted by My Life as His (Air Force) Wife
This is a tough one.  There are so many important topics that should be discussed.  I would probably want to point out the effects of frequent deployments on children and families from my personal point of view.  I think they need more dwell time between deployments.  I know the Army is aiming for this, and I hope we actually see it.
