Gratefully stolen from ArmyWifeNetwork.com.

If you immediately recognized these Christmas ornaments then you're probably from a military family.

If you have no idea what these are, then you might never understand...

Nords, they look like stickers from luggage maybe? Receipts that are attached to stuff when you move, maybe?
No military family except my sister's husband who is reserves but was called up a few years ago to go to Germany for a year.

Alas, all too recognizable. Inventory stickers. The movers put one on each box, and the numbers correspond to line items on the inventory sheets describing (very, very approximately) the contents of the box.

As a 2nd Lt, my boss's wife told me to expect that on every move, roughly 10% of my household goods would be lost, stolen, or damaged, and I would never recover anything but a tiny fraction of that from making a claim. She was dead on.

Even though it has been more than 30 years since our last PCS we still have a few stuck to old pieces of furniture.

Our last move was in 1986 and we still have boxes in the attic with those stickers on them.

Wow, so I was close. And it sure helps me understand the lack of retirement wanderlust of the military retirees. We've moved a few times, but just across town, and always with our own plus a friend's pickup truck.

We finally got rid of the last box that had one on it a few years ago. And my last PCS was quite a while ago. Never actually lost anything on a move, but there were always some broken dishes or glassware.

This sight instantly caused a jarring feeling in my stomach! We are not military but nonetheless PCS every couple years. I am almost constantly pulling those stickers off of our stuff. When I hit the point where I've got them all, it's time to move again . . .

I still found some 30 years later, "hidden" underneath chairs and such.

I presently have about 30 boxes and other un-boxed items with these stickers on them.

No one want's to see a photo of me but I'd thought I'd use this thread to update the old timers. Back in the day when we found out we were haven't our second daughter, I actually put a poll up here with our top 10 names for a vote. Olivia won! Well, she's growing up quick, as are the other two!

Counting the days until we can take off on a last minute cruise instead of having to plan a year in advance!
Although post-retirement suits and ties will probably not exist!
