    much of us... the bible and the mythology.

    We actually thought that my youngest son would become a priest one day. We lived in Europe when he was younger and he was mesmerized by Christian symbols, especially Christ on the Cross. He asked for a Christian Bible when he was about 9. He declared himself an atheist at about 10. He's never looked back since.

    Would you be willing to write up your experience in a diary? I would love to see you publish it with the Military Community Members of DailyKos.

      I should ask my mother for some of her tales of the O-Wives and the "Moses Molded" jello.  

      My father's commander was a notorious adulterer; his wife would hire no maids under the age of fifty.  My father disapproved strongly, and took a dark pleasure in preaching to him about it.

        I'll never forget the first commander's wife who made a real impression on me. She told a group of us about when her husband first joined up - it was white gloves and dresses and she showed up without gloves and in pants. The horror!

        I can only imagine. Some things change and some things stay the same. I love to hear about other experiences, even from years ago, because it helps us figure out what the military experience is all about.
