happy forth!

Combat Medic School
(and the last skirt I owned)
[PS: it was a size 16 even then]

Nursing School
Tanks for the memories!

Deployed to the War
at Fort Hood

This is what I did in the Gulf War

And lots of this

Not so much of this

Maybe just a little of this - lol!
This is the first time I realized
- at the not-so-tender age of 28 -
That I can not eat or drink anything I want,
And still get by!

I thought I was heavy - at 136!

My fave Army pic of me!

Thanks for reading!
Some times a Nurse just has to "Bragg!"

Happy July 4th to you and yours!


  1. Thanks for sharing the pictures. Have a great 4th yourself. :)

  2. I realized I never really talked much about my Army days...
    I have mentioned them here, or there...
    But never really went into much detail.
    So here I am - going forward....going FORTH!

  3. Lovely memories.

  4. Amazing pix Anne! I'm a former Air Force brat and ex Army wife so half my life was associated with the military and in or around military bases! Great respect for those who serve. Thank you for your service and for sharing this part of your life.

  5. Great pics, thanks for sharing and for your service. Happy 4th to you :).


  6. Both my parents were Navy Corpsmen back in the day. That's where they met stationed in Calfornia. Thanks for your service :)

  7. Fantastic photos. I totally respect and appreciate all those that serve and protect all of us. Happy 4th to you :)

  8. Great pics! Have a Happy 4th!

  10. Great photos, Anne, very interesting to see them. I hope you have a happy 4th!

  11. That's a beautiful photo of you, no wonder it's your favorite. Love the statue and flag too.

  12. Love the pics! Thanks for your service. Special people serve their country!

  13. Love those pictures that say in so many words … stay fit .. keep those carbs and calories down.
    I especially like the one showing a female body with inscription …Your stomach shouldn’t be a waste basket.

  14. I love that photo of you looking tiny in front of that huge tank!

    Have you thought about a post comparing diet discipline with army discipline? I'm writing about will power at the moment and I'd love to hear your thoughts.


I would love to hear from you!
