isn't it amazing how easily we can chat with someone (and see their face if we're lucky enough) across the world? not just afghanistan- but italy, australia or brazil...all from the comfort of your home, airport, office or car. seriously, where would we be without skype?
let me say this: it makes deployment so much easier...and anything that makes a year-long deployment easier, is something to be thankful for in my book. i often wonder how couples stayed connected during those long, long stretches in world war 1 or 2. Not knowing when they would hear from one another or even go home. a. and i are able to chat almost everyday and i'm so grateful for that connection. while most of the time we spend typing, there are the rare occasions that we can actually talk or video conference. and those days are amazing!
so thank you skype. thank you for brightening our days and keeping it possible to chat often...especially during the holidays!
