By Sarah Smiley
In 1999, Sarah was a typical bride-to-be, flustered with wedding details. Then the groom called. I dont want you to panic, but I might not be able to come to our wedding….
So began Sarah Smileys life as a military wife. As a former Navy brat herself, Sarah knew better than anyone that weddings and funerals – even childbirth! – take a backseat to Uncle Sam. But just as the young, nationally syndicated columnist was getting comfortable with the military wifes routine, her husband was sent away for an unexpected deployment.
What followed was a true test of strength and wit. From getting locked out of the house in cowgirl pajamas to wrestling with the temptation of infidelity, Sarah exposes it all with candor, heart – and humor.
