Silent Salute Award

I was surprised and grateful to have received this award from a fabulous fellow blogger. HUGS and a big thanks to Sarah, who authors the blog, 'Tis the Life of the Army Wife. Thank you, Sarah!

The Rules for this Award:

You must pass this award on to ONE person.

You must tell the world of three ways you and your members silently salute our troops!

So on to following the rules ...

I follow quite a few of truly fabulous blogs and would be happy to pass this along to any one of them. The blogger that came to mind, first, though is a fabulous lady that I met (in person!) several years ago at Fort Hood. She was active in supporting the FRG then and has gone on to be incredibly helpful to many military spouses across the globe. Her talents seem limitless as she has published work in the area of early childhood education as well. So this Silent Salute Award goes to my fabulous blogger friend, Candace, and her fantastic blog, Army Wives' Lives!

Three ways you silently support our troops:

  1. I believe that silently supporting our troops is commonplace to anyone who is married to a servicemember. Constant support, care, and concern for my Soldier and his troops is a part of my daily life and the most important way I support our troops.
  2. I would consider my support of and participation in our unit's Family Readiness Group (FRG), no matter the unit, another avenue of supporting our troops. I know there are a lot of folks who have negative impressions of the FRG, but I firmly believe in the potential of this group and its ability to support and encourage our Soldiers and their Family members. I will always work to ensure that the FRG we're associated with is as positive as possible for all involved.
  3. Finally, my blog has become a constant source of both comfort to me and a way for me to express my experiences in the Army ... hopefully to the encouragement of another. With each post, I am hopeful that something written there will touch the life of another person in a positive way.


  1. Thank you so much! Just spotting this now since Conrad Ulysses was born 5/31. I will keep this award soon as I can get back on post-baby track!
