We were lucky, he didn't get sent to Vietnam, he served in Korea, Germany, Turkey and various bases here in the States. Every 3-4 years our family was packed up and shipped to somewhere different. We've had to sell our home, give up pets, say goodbye to family and friends.
Our last assignment was to Turkey and my Mother cried when she heard we were going, she was afraid she'd never see us again. She did though.
Mac got orders to Turkey half way through our daughter's senior year of high school, so he went ahead of us and came back for her graduation. We had to fly out the next day.
We sent her home from Turkey to start college, and cried all the way back to our apartment.
So, what am I saying, I'm saying blessing not only to the Veterans, but to their families who give up so much so we can live our lives.
