Funny Deployment Stories: TAD

deploymentstoriesbutton1 You all may remember my Deployment Series in which a number of lovely ladies shared their deployment experiences and their tips to survive.  But deployments aren’t always all bad.  Sometimes there are some pretty funny things that happen and I’m happy to share with you a few stories that show the funny side of deployments.  If you have a funny deployment story you’d like to share, please email me!  I’d love to highlight your story!

Hi, I’m Holly. I blog, intermittently, over at The Robertson Clann. I say intermittently because I’m an awful blogger. But I’m great on facebook! Probably only because I can access it on my phone and it’s easier. I’m a lurker though. If your post shows up in my feed I read it. Or in my inbox… if not then, well, I probably don’t. Anyway, I said I’d get this post emailed by the end of the day, so here goes. My funny TAD story.

I was lucky Eric didn’t deploy while we were married/stationed at MCLB. But Once a month for a week or more, he and his partner (in crime) Would drive from MCLB to Alabama. I went with him every once in a while in the beginning, but man let me tell you. Room service gets OOOOOLD after a while. Well, not room service, but just the general having to go out for everything, every meal. I Just felt gross. So after the first couple times I just stayed home and at night my Husband would call me or we would skype.
anyway one week he decides on a whim to grow a field stache. Which as many of you may know if just plain ridiculous. He swore up and down he wouldn’t let me see it, because even HE knew he looked ridiculous. Honestly he looked like a 70′s porn star.
One night for whatever reason he decided not to go out with the guys. He missed me and was lonely. So he skyped me. and lo an behold the stach. Ladies, I laughed so hard I cried. I had NEVER seen my husband with any kind of facial hair ever. and it was HILARIOUS. It was red and scruffy and awful. he had completely forgotten about it. Of course in the morning he shaved it and I never got a photo of it. I was FAR to busy laughing to take a screen shot.
However, I did photoshop an image to give you a general idea about what he looked like that night.
