'We both have faith'
My wife is assigned to 15th PSB 1st CAV Div, currently stationed in Iraq. She is serving a 15 month rotation and should re-deploy in a few months. She now serves as the S-3 NCOIC after relinquishing her position as 1SG HHD 15th PSB. She is a true Soldier and love what she does for the Army and the young soldiers under her leadership. We have four kids, with the youngest being 2 ½ years old. I am also in the military, and had just returned from a deployment prior to her deploying to the same location. At times, it becomes very stressful for us both. Although deployments may come and go we both have faith that God will send stability our way soon.
