I am a MilSpouse. My husband, Andrew, is an officer in the US Army. We are college sweethearts and have been together for 11 years, married for seven of them.

Mother Army loves to bounce us between our bi-coastal families. We’ve called the following places “home” so far:
Sep 2005- May 2008: Upstate NY- Marist College & West Point
Jan 2009 – Mar 2012: Fort Carson, CO (3/4 ID 1-8 IN)
Mar 2012 – Jan 2013: Fort Benning, GA (MCCC, Ranger School, Airborne School)
Jan 2013 – Jul 2016: Fort Bragg, NC (5-73CAV 3BCT 82nd Airborne)
Jul 2016 – Present: Ann Arbor, MI (University of Michigan — NERS Graduate Program)

started Keep Calm and Soldier On in March 2010, when my husband left for a year-long deployment to Iraq. It was a public journal of sorts at that time- a good way to relieve the stress of deployment. These days, I write about my glamorous days a stay-at-home mommy, my favorite recipes, my {mis}adventures in crafting, my pinspirations turned projects and my family’s life in the military.

    I see you and your family are currently at Fort Bragg! I found your blog through the Ranger School Support Group Facebook Page! My husband and I moved to Bragg last Monday and he started ranger school on Sunday. Can’t wait to start following your sweet family on your blog 🙂

    • Wishing your husband lots of luck in hoping he goes straight through!! If you have any questions about Ranger School, I’d be happy to try to help. Please just let me know. Thanks for taking a look around!
