I found an interesting round of Soldier show-and-tell via MaryAnn. Watching the video made my eyes well with tears. It was touching to watch the soldiers explain the little mementos they carry with them while deployed.
I had cropped photos of our family laminated and sent to my husband when he deployed. The photos were small enough to keep on him. Photos mean so much when you're separated and given the gritty, dusty climate, the laminate protected the photos. What does your spouse carry with him or her, and why?
How about you? Do you have items you carry with you while your spouse is gone?
