My husband is currently in the military (Air Force)...he has been in 22 years (we have been married 20 of those years)...my husband's squadron is a deployment unit. My father was also in the Air Force for 24 years and both my paternal grandmother and grandfather were in the Army for WWII and my maternal grandfather. My brother was also in the Army...lol I guess you could say I come from a long line of a military family. Thank you for offering such a great package! That is really kind and generous of you!!!
