I'm reading the book "Fearless" about the Navy SEAL Team SIX Operator, Adam Brown. (great book, EVERYONE needs to read it!!!) In it, his wife Kelly says
"We were all pretty naive and innocent back then. We were young military couples just starting to have kids. We knew what our husbands did, what they trained for, but it was peacetime. In my mind it was like what they did was a movie. What they were training for would never really happen."
I couldn't agree with her more! My Marine has told me bits and pieces of his training, what he's been through, how hard he's worked but it never really sank in to me. I always thought "I'm so proud of who he is since high school." (His story is much like Adam Brown's). Now, he's being deployed. I never thought it would happen to us. He's a reservist, why would they want him? It's just like Kelly said "...it was like what they did was in a movie. What they were training for would never really happen." I couldn't agree more with that statement. It's funny how something will hit you and you realize you're not the only one going through it.
Anyways, sorry ladies. I thought I would share that. This book is awesome and an inspiration to those serving or not.
