I'm in the dog house.


Apparently, Will is not only upset that I haven't gotten back to my regularly scheduled posting, but feels like I should have sent more attention his way in Tuesday's post.
 Glory hound.

Well, baby...this post is for YOU.

As with any job, people work towards promotions, and the Army is no different. Yes, some Joe's are happy just getting a paycheck, but soldiers like my husband don't settle for that. Just three short years ago he joined the Military, and now he has already worked his way up to becoming an NCO.

Non-Commissioned Officer
The non-commissioned officer corps is often referred to as "the backbone" of the armed services, as they are the primary and most visible leaders for most military personnel. Additionally, they are the leaders primarily responsible for executing a military organization's mission and for training military personnel so they are prepared to execute their missions. 

I was one proud little wife when I got to witness the ceremony and even take part in it. My heart swelled with pride as I enjoyed the ritual that was focused in on my husband. 
My soldier...

In case you are intrigued by what might go on during these events, I captured the First SGT's speech in the first video and the second video is a bit of the shenanigans that go on. Let's just say, the more punches a soldier gets, the more respect they have. {Do beware of the language that is used and the bad quality of my old camera}

Now that I'm an NCO's wife, I need to go back and read The Army Wife Handbook and this PDF I found of The Spouse's Handbook. As silly as it sounds, it's kind of important to know the etiquette and nuances, and I love being able to hold a conversation about what Will does and the Army in general. Some wives don't know what there husband's job is {totally fine}, but I am happy to admit that my life revolves around my soldier and ultimately the Army.  Hooah!

I love you SGT Bogert!!

Jamie said...

I've said it once and I will say it again and again.. please thank your husband for protecting my freedom (and my loved ones)-- and for all that he does. But with that being said-- thank YOU for all the support you offer him. I think that ALL the military wives need appreciation too. They go through a lot and often get over looked. I'm proud that you are PROUD of your soldier! :)

Okay, can I just say your husband is good looking? Okay now that I got that nonsense out of the way, congrats to him & you too!

& do thank him for me too! My dad is a police officer and stepdad did a tour in iraq, so I definitely am grateful for all our men and women in uniform!
