Re-integration: The process of coming together as a family again after a military deployment or an unaccompanied assignment.

Re-integration is not always an easy process, nor is it something that happens over night; it really is a process, not a single event that ends when the military member safely returns home. Successful re-integration requires effort and time, as well as an understanding that everyone involved has changed during the separation. 

In My Afghanistan Campaign Diary: Views of a Military Spouse you accompanied my Air Force pilot husband, our two furry children and me through the ups and downs of wartime deployment. Now that it's all in the past, have you ever asked yourself what happens after a military member returns from a prolonged deployment?! And what happens when you rather suddenly have to pack up and move to a new assignment? 

Let the diary continue! This is our family's enduring story and we are off on our newest adventure...relocating from the final frontier called Alaska to the Air Force's center of geekiness, also known as AFIT (Air Force Institute of Technology). Military Moves...Ugh! Just the thought of moving again and again makes many of us shake our heads; moving every three to four years at the mere drop of a hat can take on nightmarish proportions. Giving up close friends and a familiar way of life, we propel ourselves toward the unknown and an uncertain future in new locations. Join us again on another long-winded journey, laced with plenty of bureaucracy, drama and some unavoidable heartache!
