:( every time i;ve had to send james off, i sat in the car crying my eyes out because he didn't want me to cry in front of him.

Welcome home... [US Army, Ranger Airborne] I just got lost in military homecoming videos on YouTube..bring on the waterworks. V & I have a lot of friends in the armed forces and I am. Constantly grateful for the service of these troops and their families.

SO TRUE!!! Add kids to that mix and you deserve a NAM!!

Confession #529: I love you more than life itself, I’m so proud of the man that you’ve become and I’m so lucky to be able to see the changes in you. You make me want to be a better person and I will strive everyday to make you the happiest man in the world, even if you are 4,000 miles away from me. We got this, it’s me and you. Always has been, always will be. Photo submitted by ashleyy-tayylor

Confession #431: I’m afraid to break down anywhere but in my car about him leaving because if he sees me cry I’m afraid he’ll think I’m not strong enough to do this. -In all honesty, silent tears when he is here but gut wrenching tears aka ugly cry the minute he walks down the terminal.

"He is the reason why I have so much patience, so much courage, and so much strength. He is my Love, my Hero, my Everything. HE IS A U.S. SOLDIER" _____________________________ Reposted by Dr. Veronica Lee, DNP (Depew/Buffalo, NY, US)

<3 I still remember the first letter Cliff wrote me like this....I couldn't bring myself to open it for weeks into the deployment, and when I did...I was a mess. Blessedly he DID come home that time and the time after, but it is a letter I will treasure forever.
