America's Unsung Heroes
I am very grateful for all the words of encouragement and support that I have received since I deployed…we all are. I want something be known though. Without the love and support of my wife, I would be unable to do what I am doing. I shudder at the thought of being here with anyone other than my wife manning the front lines of our home. So while we may be deserving of the thanks of our nation, I feel that the husbands and wives of your service members are deserving of so much more. For without them, many of us would not be able to accomplish the mission that has been set before us. They are the unsung heroes of our country and the bravest of hearts and strongest of souls. They are the ones making the true sacrifices and being left to accomplish a mission by themselves that was not meant to be done alone. It is my hope that when Americans feel a debt of gratitude for the men and women fighting to protect their freedom, that they also feel indebted to the ones fighting to protect America’s families in our absence.
