In honor of Veteran's Day (which is technically tomorrow), I would like to give thanks to a very special soldier. My best friend's husband risked everything for this country when he spent several years in Iraq as an Army Ranger. He continues his sacrifice daily as he struggles with life-threatening health conditions as a result of the war.
I also would like to thank his wife, who has been by his side the entire time and is a veteran in her own way. Though she did not serve, she deserves to be recognized for standing beside her husband and caring for him and their two children through the craziness of their lives. They go through each day never knowing what the next will bring, and meet it all head-on with squared shoulders and their heads held high.
