Military Spouse Memes for National Guard Spouses
National Guard life can be a whole different ball game than active duty life. You might be far away from any other military spouses, your spouse isn’t in his military uniform all of the time, and you have lived in the same place for the last 15 years.
We watch our spouse work hard during the work week at their civilian jobs and then put on the military uniform for monthly drills and yearly trainings. We watch as they go off to schools and even deploy. We feel the same pride our active duty spouse friends do at watching their spouse serve.
Here are some military spouse memes just for us National Guard spouses:
Whether your spouse is National Guard or active duty, when they are gone, you will miss them.
Ya, we all know that “two weeks a year” could mean anything. Two weeks is just a starting point.
When you rely on your spouse being home for ladies nights, drill weekends can put a stop to your plans.
When your spouse is in the National Guard, it can feel like you are not quite in the military world but also not quite in the civilian one either. That can be difficult and it can take some time to get used to that feeling.
Yep! If something in your house is going to break, it will be drill weekend.
I swear that appliances get together and plan this.
Hey, if they have to be away, look at the positives. The remote all to yourself. If you are like me, you have those special shows you watch once a month.
Yep! I get a lot of organizing done when he is gone. Much easier to do things that way.
You have to get prepared ahead of time for the long weekend ahead.
My husband has been in the National Guard for over three years now. During that time I have learned so much about this part of military life.
Are you a National Guard spouse too? How long has your spouse been serving?
