Any spouse of a deployed service members knows that when she/he receives a Tough Box in the mail, the deployment is nearing the end. A welcome sign. And wouldn’t you know, a Tough Box from Afghanistan was waiting for me pick up at the post office when I arrived home form a quick trip to Wilmington.
I know what you’re thinking…did my husband fill the Tough Box with exotic gifts for his beloved wife? Nope. Just uniforms and the like.
It’s okay. I’ll take old uniforms if it means my husband is coming home soon.
