Imagine, Believe, Achieve

What a perfect WordArt for today!!! Thanks to Jana for suggesting it! Awesome :)

OK, you guys, I wanted to share with you the BIG changes in the Harty Household. My hubby is joining the United States Army as an Officer!!! We're going up to Columbus today to sign the papers, and he's getting sworn in!!! We should find out the date he goes into Basic Training (the kids and I are moving back to Oregon to live with my family).

That should be 9 weeks, then OCS (officer candidate school) is about 16 weeks. After that, I think we get to come too! We really are excited about all the changes, and think it will be a good life change for us! We're used to moving around, so that won't be a problem. AND, I'm looking forward to being with my parents out in Oregon. We haven't been back for a visit since the summer of 2005.

So, be sure to think good thoughts for us today! I'll have more info tomorrow :) So, back to WordArt - Imagine, Believe, Achieve! This is SO us on our journey into the military. Captain America had to lose a LOT of weight to get in, and he did it. And in like 8 weeks!!! So, thanks again Jana for the WordArt request. It was PERFECT!!! I'm so proud of my husband, and for his willingness to serve our country. I know he's going to do a wonderful job!

I am glad all of you are so happy with his choice to join up!
(I as 6 years in the German Airforce and my fiancé is with the US Army.)

Being an Army spouse is not always fun, but it does have its perks ;)

Just want to take a moment to tell you (again!) Im so proud of your husband. It must be way cool to be the wife of an "American Hero!"
Oh, and thanks for the word art. :)

Congratulations to you and your family on his decision to become an Army officer. My son went to Marine OCS last winter-unfortunately he got tendinitis in his knee and was sent home three weeks short of his commissioning. He is back running now and getting ready to go back in January. For him it is a calling to serve. Good luck and best wishes to him and your family

Congrats to Brent, what an awesome thing to do. I hope it all works out well for you all.

BTW My son's name is Brent, I don't see that name around much so I always smile when I see someone else has a Brent in the family.

Congratulations on your new adventure. It won't always be glamourous but it will always be something you are all proud of. Welcome to a very large new family! My husband has been in for 29 years (deployed twice), our dads were both in for 30 years, and my son has been in for a year and already deployed. :) Your Army sisters are here if you need us! :)

Hey, Congratulations! We have a few friends in the army. 2 are leaving for Iraq in August. 1 of them also does reenactments. We love going and watching them in our area. I'm in Washington State. We'll be neighbors. I've been stalking your site for awhile now. Odd how reading someone's blog everyday makes you feel like you know them... even when you don't.

Anyway, Good luck with the changes and the move!
