I was only in the army for a little over 6 years, been out for almost 10. I find it humorous that I still do certain things the "army" way. Like when I packed to go on vacation, my clothes were neatly folded and then rolled to make more room, certain items placed neatly in zip lock pags for safety. I automatically clear a gun when I first pick it up, and any of mine get TLC once per week, carbon scraped with a dental pick. My kids address me and my husband as "Yes, Ma'am" or "yes, Sir". I put a hat on when going outside, taking it off the moment I get inside. I iron creases into shirts and pants - my kids tell me that no other moms iron like I do. My hubby, a complete civilian, thinks it's cute that I have "leftovers" from my military life - and he's still trying to understand some of the language and acronyms - Like FUBAR, police up the yard, class six stop, etc. Anyone else have "leftovers"?
