BEING AN ARMY SPOUSE

U.S. Army Health Care

I think the best thing about military life is that you really get to see different parts of the country and different cultures within the United States. I've met some really great people here. San Antonio is very welcoming.

Hi, I'm Laura Blair. I work at North Central Baptist Hospital in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit as a nurse, and my husband is James Blair.

We came to Fort Sam Houston and San Antonio in June of 2008. I work as a NICU nurse, taking care of critically ill infants. I shape the first year of their lives and work with their parents, helping them learn how to take care of them. My husband is very supportive, with him being in the medical field.

There are a lot of great benefits to James being in the military, doing his residency. There's a huge support system with everyone else who is going through it, because it's a little bit of a unique residency. I've met several spouses. They make a point to talk to you and find out who you are and what makes you different from someone else. They are so welcoming to you being in that community and that's just a different experience that I never had before becoming part of the military.

My husband and I really enjoy doing things together. We typically like to go for a jog together. We like to go to the movies. We love to go hiking outdoors. We just have so much fun together, the two of us.

We've been in San Antonio now for two and a half years and we've been able to accomplish so much here. Meeting different people. Seeing different parts of Texas. Being each other's support system and truly enjoying this unique experience.
