Officer’s Wife

Despised by Enlisted Wives; mocked by Female Vets–marginalized by our own Husbands, we plugged along, gave birth alone, gritted our teeth and soldiered on.

We cared for our kids, our husbands our friends—without much support—without recognition–which we didn’t expect any way. C’est la Vie.

Today, Support groups for everyone– Vet Groups, Female Vet Groups–the VA and more, we are relegated to the auxiliary—

Until they need us to do something.

It’s only then that we matter.
