November 11, 2015 - 10:00am
I was very young, newly married, living in a mobile home on the plains of South Dakota with no friends or family nearby and no option to leave. I waited tables to pay the bills and went to school in a temporary trailer at night. The weather was harsh and unforgiving and I had to tiptoe around rattlesnakes as I walked through a field to get to work. There were days that my tips were the only cash we had until payday. Every morning my husband ironed his clothes to perfection, drove through a security checkpoint and went to his office in a cavernous airplane hangar. He reported to an office he had no part in choosing, in a state we were ordered to move to. On any one of those days he could have been told to pack his gear and head out to some dangerous conflict in the world. Saying "no" would not have been an option. My husband was an airman. He had enlisted in the United States Air Force and went to basic training two weeks after our wedding. I was finally able to join him at his first assignment at Ellsworth AFB in Rapid City, South Dakota.
