The Perks of the Military Life

Sometimes it's easy to focus on the negative aspects of a military life (deployments, continual moves, separation from family, etc.) but there definitely are perks to it as well. Tonight we got to watch Miles and his Soldiers practice fast roping out of chinook helicopters. Finn loved it and didn't want to leave despite the fact that we stayed for 45 minutes and watched the same thing at least a dozen times.

So while it may be 10:30pm and Miles isn't home yet, I'm going to remember this smile of Finn's and be grateful for the unique and exciting experiences we get to have because of this lifestyle.
