      My heart just melted - God bless our troops and the families that sacrifice in too many ways to list that our country might remain free

      Our tiniest heroes sacrifice so much more than we know. American Soldier...I never miss the chance to tell a soldier, man or woman how much I thank them for the sacrifice's they have made for me and for America. If you see them in your town please walk right up to them and let them know that they are in your prayers and we do love and appreciate them. Helen Wilsher...

      My hubby has not even seen our son yet from his deployment, is hard enough nor do i want my son to ever miss him like this. Military life is so hard but its for our country. :)

      Son would not let go of dad the soldier before deployment. This breaks my heart. Damn humans who get fellow humans into wars and result in heart-rending moments like this.

    Everyone deployed everywhere has someone waiting for them to come home so they can hold their hand.

    A Powerful Image...

    Women are strong in the military. I love this picture. It's so inspiring and powerful. Words cannot begin to describe how proud I am of all other women fighting!

    so powerful.

    When this photo was entered in our photo contest, the caption read: "This was Daddy saying the final prayer over the kids before he left this deployment." You can see the differing emotions on the children's faces. Soon, their Dad will leave and they won't see him for months, or in the worst case, ever again. This photo captures an agonizing, beautiful moment that most American families don't truly appreciate. Our military families sacrifice so much for our freedoms and we're committed to sup...

    Thank you for your service!..j
