Welcome Home, Diana! Glad you made it back, and would love to be able to walk in and give you a big hug! Guess I’ll probably have to wait until Reunion, huh? April 19-20-21

An insightful piece. I am sorry for missing your last hours at Bahar’s.

Your friends are smart people. I can see how having to leave some behind would be hard, even though it was to come home to the one you love.

Grieving. I would never have thought of that, but it fits. You’re experiencing a loss, and that’s the normal response.

Anyway, enough of the amateur head shrinking. Welcome home.

Oh yes yes. There is NOTHING like the sense of close-knit family and community you find in an overseas assignment, especially (but not only) unaccompanied. The friendships you make and the feeling of all of you - the entire base - all pulling together to make this strange little life in a strange land, simply cannot be replicated stateside, where even the best, tightest units disperse into the sea of civilian humanity at the end of the day.

I do miss the military, when I think about the community aspects. The years I spent at Ramstein, Lajes, and Toledo were among the top highlights of my life.
