Reading Your Stories

The whole blog thing is new to me, which is readily obvious by my lack of writing. Through my research, I have decided to really begin reading blogs. More specifically, I have been reading the stories of military wives and girlfriend's experiences with deployment. The stories are wonderful. I am so amazed by the wonderful creativity, the supportive comments, and the willingness to share. I only wish I could sit down with each and every one of these women to talk about all of the experiences they are having. Each story is different. Each person has new perspectives, hopes, fears, and faith. I have always known that my research would be interesting; I just had no idea that it would be so relevant and so inspiring.

Now for more interviews with wonderful people!

Thank you!

I feel it is necessary to thank the participants who have offered their time for an interview with me! These women are busy taking care of their lives while their husbands are deployed, so it means a lot that they are taking time out to talk with me. Not only that, but they are also spreading the word about my study (see below)!! So, thank you. Thank you for your time and thank you for your help! I couldn't do all this without you!
