Over 5 years ago a very close friend of mine, Eddie Heydaragha was brutally murdered here in Sacramento. There were no arrests made, no suspects, no DNA hits.. nothing!

Until now...

I'm SO thankful to still be home during this!

I love you, Eddie! I miss you more and more as time goes by. I hope you are at peace now that these awful people are being held accountable for what they did to you! XOXO.. "Smile like a donut!"

I have been without a computer for quite some time now so I haven't been able to blog. :( Sad, I know!

Anyways, we will be moving to Germany this October! I'm not sure the exact date yet, but Terry graduates September 25th, and he has 2 weeks to be on post from there. He did apply for the HRAP program which would give him an extra 2 weeks here in Sacramento recruiting. We're just waiting for him to get approved for that.

In the meantime, I absolutely am being overwhelmed with all the things I have to do to be prepared for take-off! I still haven't been to get my military ID (I was without a car until Sunday, so I'm working on it now), I have to enroll for TriCare, get physicals for our passports, and make sure that my 2 dogs and my cat are ready for travel. Probably doesn't sound like much I'm sure, but when I'm trying to tackle it alone, it's making me crazy. Right now I feel like everytime I go to start a task, I'm unable to complete it because I hit a road block! I have soooo many questions, and honestly, I don't know who to turn to!
  • Do I arrange travel plans for the flight to Germany, or does the ARMY take care of that?
  • If they take care of it, which airline are we flying so that I can know what I need to have ready as far as the pets go (different airlines have different regulations)?
  • What type of vaccinations/certifications do my pets need to have before arriving Germany?
  • If there is a waiting list for base housing, can I apply before we arrive? Or do I wait until we get there?
  • How can I check the pet policy for the installation we're moving to? I heard some bases have a 2 pet limit, some have a 3 pet limit..

Trust me, this is NOT the end of the questions, probably just the half of it. I'm hoping another ARMY or Military wife comes across my blog and can maybe answer a question or two.. Someone that has been through or is going through what I am right now. I NEED HELP!!

June 27th, 2009
So here's a packet about graduation that you need to know. It says I am graduating on Sept 25th but it might be a little sooner but that is the predicted date... It's gay I know, that puts me back over two weeks from my original date.
OH! So I found out where my first duty station might be. How does Germany sound? :\ When he told me that I instantly started crying because the first thing that popped into my head was you saying you guys wouldn't go overseas with me. Drill Sargeant said that it's really nice there and that he'd so the rest of his twenty years there if he could. Man, I just can't stop thinking about it. DS talked to me personally in the No Fly zone (his office where we are not allowed). So let me know what you think. :(
It's been messing up my whole day while training. Anyways, how's everything there? Oh man, I miss you guys...
Ok, I'm going to sleep now. I love you guys, give Bubba loves for me.
Love, Terry
