By Corie Weathers
#9328 In this book, the author tells about the journey that changed her perspective of deployment and her military marriage.
Corie loved being a military spouse and all the joys of community it had brought into her and her husband’s lives. But she was not prepared, however, for the difficulty that would come from extended separations from her husband and the impact of his witnessing the horror of war. Because of his deployments, they each had experiences the other was unable to understand. They called their experiences “sacred spaces,” but over time each accumulated more “sacred spaces” than they could cope with.
Through a journey with then Secretary of Defense Ashton Carter overseas, Corie came to have a better understanding of what her husband had been through. At the same time, her husband was home with their children experiencing a sense of what Corie’s life on the homefront had been like. The couple thus began to share more shared spaces together.
