Families of Army 7th Special Forces Group still settling into new home

Published: Saturday, November 17, 2012 at 11:27 AM.

Carver’s oldest son was starting his junior year in high school, and she didn’t want to move him in the middle of the year.

So she rushed to pack up two houses and finish renovations, and then loaded the family’s belongings in a 26-foot moving truck to drive down herself.

She wasn’t able to bring everything the first trip. They had packed winter and summer clothes separately, but couldn’t take them all. She decided on the summer boxes.

“It’s Florida,” she said. “Then we got here and said, ‘What is this?’ It’s winter and it’s actually cold.”

Carver said her family struggled to adjust.

Her husband was gone. He’s only been to their new home for about five months in the two years since they moved.

She, her middle school son, her high school son and her nephew who was living with her while her brother was deployed had trouble. Like many other families, everything her kids had known was at Fort Bragg.
