Friends Were a Big Help
Seth R. • Great Bend, KS • Lasagna Lover
Who helped you cope with relocations and/or deployments?
Friends were a big help. I also got advice from my father, a former Army officer. But it wasn’t just friends and family…it was people you didn’t even know. A couple of times I got mail from local elementary school kids…I thought that was awesome.
What did you learn about yourself through your military experience?
I had the ability to be a leader, and I learned to communicate well and inspire others, which helped me make friends easily.
We often hear after friends and family, a taste of home is what our servicemembers miss the most. What home-cooked meal did you crave when you were away?
My mother’s homemade lasagna…it’s fantastic. Reminds me of being at home in the country, hanging out with my dogs.
