Savannah with my sister
Had a great weekend with my little sister (stationed at Ft Stewart). We swapped some Army stories- my stories were Dad’s, mostly learned from my interviews for the book. She’s only been in a little over a year, but we laughed over some similarities – she and my dad have a propensity for leaving their weapons unaccounted for- a mistake you only make once.
I really enjoyed this weekend with my sister – it was the first time I saw her as an adult, and not just “my little sister”. Seeing her ACUs in her closet, her patrol cap on the counter- it’s still really hard to see her as in the Army, and not just “playing Army”. When this book gets published, I know she’ll read it wherever she’s stationed and hopefully gain a better understanding of my Dad, the way I have.
