Dizzy’s Ten Post Round-Up

Yesterday, marking the 5th anniversary of the US invasion of Iraq, was far from a somber day, for me. I have to somewhat disconnect from my feelings about the war because I live with it, on too many levels.

As a military spouse, of course, I live with the Iraq war on daily basis, as I tend the home-fires and keep them burning. As the only regular professional entertainment for the troops, where my husband is stationed, I get to meet soldiers on their way to and/or from the war(s).

I have seen a few of them with parts of their skulls or other body parts, blown off. I have met many more at their mentally and emotionally lowest point in their life. Many of them tell me that my show is a form or therapy for them. It’s a form of therapy for their wives, too.

Honestly, it’s a form of therapy for me, too. If I was not serving the troops entertainment, I would be sitting at home worrying for my own soldier. I feel like I am giving something back and it makes me feel less lonely knowing that I am doing something good for others, rather than wallowing in my own misery.

I try to make a point to sing fun, upbeat and positive music. The following piece of mood music is one of the most popular songs I sing and I love how it brings a smile to even the grumpiest soldier’s face: Swing Out Sister – Breakout

    Plan A) A military base.

    Plan B) A systematically phased withdraw.

    Plan C) Pull out all the troops within a year and send them back in if necessary.

    Which plan is closer to yours if you were the president of the United States?
