We all know that military friends never really say good-bye, just 'see ya' down the road'. It's true, eventually we all meet up again. And that's a great thing!
A friend of mine just sent me an email that shows the differences between military friends and regular, run-of-the-mill friends. It was too good to keep to myself!
Friends: Never ask for foodMilitary Friends: Are thereason you have no food.Friends: Borrow your stuff for a few days andthen give it back.Military Friends: Borrow your stuff, keep it, and it goesPCS withthem.Friends: Know a few things about you.MilitaryFriends: Know all about you or have met someone else atanother duty stationwho does.Friends: Will leave you behind if that's what the crowd isdoing.

God Bless my military friends! You are my strength, my backbone, my funny bone and the reason I can so often smile no matter what life, or the military, throw at me!
