So by now you can tell by some of my blogs I tend to be a certified complainer. As patient and as kind as I am I find annoyance in alot of things.
So today's annoyance was my husbands units Deployment Ceremony.
Ok simply put what is the point of it?
For those who may have not been to one , it is pretty much a ceremony where the General speaks, maybe a LT COL some soldiers do formation , they do the color guard thing and then they release the soldiers and tell the wives you may go get your soldier....
Umm notice the highlighted part above and then think about all of this is BEFORE the deployment even begins. I guess the part that truly annoys me is not really the ceremony itself, but more so that it's already hard having your spouse leave but ceremonies like this always seem so final to me. It's almost like the deployment is being rubbed in your face.
I chose not to go to this one because I had been to one last deployment.
At the end of the day I'm all for formalities but this is one formality I can live without.
