Talk about Army and the first thing that comes to my mind is Passion, the Zeal. Other synonyms would include courage, vigour, love, diligence, spirit, brotherhood, ethos, comraderie, respect, friendship, warmth..oh, the list goes on.
The time has come to put a rest to this amazing #AtoZChallenge! Whoa! What a wonderful feeling of sharing the life of an army wife! The reputation, challenges, fun, responsibility and living the life to its fullest are only a part of our life. It also drives us strongly to our belief of being truthful and patriotic when we always hear the heroics and sacrifices, for us to be comfortable and safe like today.
The beautiful journey started with sharing the how it is to be an army wife, the associated features and also the privilege and pleasure to be a part of this big family.
Zeal : Zeal to be a part of family, thanks to my father.
Zeal to be associated with a great school.
Zeal to be married to an army officer.
Zeal to be an army wife and be part of the great organization.
Zeal to be a part of it in years to come.
The encouragement and response from my fellow bloggers and readers has supported my cause of being a firm believer in the Defense Forces which gives unconditional support to us. If I would get an opportunity to choose a profession, then definitely it would have been this.
I might have been able to provide a bit of exposure of our life, but I am sure there are many more people whom you will find in your journey who can share some unforgettable and great stories which can cheer you, scare you, chill you but also make you proud. My intention was to share the beautiful part of this life and also the Zeal- which drives us all to do what we love.
We the Army Wives, are Zealous, driven by passion- because we have a soldier by our side!
I am Married to the Olive Green and I’m writing about the 26 things which I get to do/experience that you as a Civilian wife do not!
Thanks for all the love which you have showered on me and my space! Couldn’t have done it without your support!

It takes a special person to be a military spouse – I know from my brief (four year) experience being one in the United States, many years ago. Congrats on completing A to Z! It was a pleasure (and an honor) reading some of your posts.
