'Are you guys military?'

'Are you guys military?'

Author Amy

I relate my story of how a stranger knocked on my door and asked to tour my home because she will be moving in when we leave and my friends and I laugh at the awkward nature of #onbaseliving. An acquaintance I have seen around but haven’t had a conversation with asks in a strong and assertive voice, “Are you guys #military?” At the end of three years, it’s exhausting to introduce myself to another new face and I am slightly surprised by her question. You see, I have never been yelled at and starved in #basictraining, I have never endured the rigors of tech school, my hair is not pulled into a neat and tidy bun, I wear shorts, T-shirts and flip-flops and have never been

saluted nor do I salute. I reply to her with a clear and accurate answer, “My husband is in the #military.”
