Jess and I went to our second military intelligence ball on Friday. They provided us dinner, entertainment (Comedy Sports), and a dance. It was fun to go to our 30-something prom. And surprisingly it was much the same as your high school equivalent. You see trampy girls, guys who want to impress everyone, and the shy quiet people too.
The Brigade Sergeant Major gave a little speech and was going to tell stories of soldiers who were extraordinary during their deployment last year. He decided last minute to not share the stories but later came up to Jess and told him he was one of the soldiers he was going to talk about. I was very proud to be married to someone who is such an example no matter who he is around or what setting. What a lucky woman I am.
