Military Family Traditions

posted on February 26, 2014 by Catherine Mann

Seems only a blink ago, my firstborn was playing with his daddy’s military gear… wearing his helmet, walking in his flight boots.  Now my daughter has married a military man too.  And her firstborn is climbing into daddy’s rucksack, wearing his dogtags. In a blink, decades have passed. Traditions live on… (Although I do have to say, thank goodness the tradition of my bad 1980’s perm has NOT been passed along to the next generation!) If you would like to see more of my family’s adventures in military life (9 moves in 20 years), check out My Happily Ever After  page.
