This is a e-mail that my husband sent to me, and I would like to share it with
all the other woman who are waiting for there husbands to come home.
I am very proud of you. I know that sounds corny, but I don't think many woman
could do all that you have done alone. Your are an extraordinary woman, and if
I could give you a "military wife" award, I would. The Marines, soldiers,
airmen, and sailors get all the credit for "fighting terrorism" and defending
our country, but it is strong, loving women like you that keep us going. I want
you to know that, because I couldn't have done this without your support. You
deserve as much recognition for operation "Enduring Freedom" as we do. That's
probably small consolation, but you and the other military wives should take
just as much pride in the service you do for our country as the service we do.
To be honest, I have been lonely and depressed for a long time, especially when
Hailey was born. It has been your emails, phone calls, and love that has been
my comfort. I just want to say thank you for all that you have done and I can
only hope to be half the husband that you have been as a wife. With all my love
I'm sending this because military wives don't get as much recognition as I
think we deserve. When my husband wrote this he wrote it to all of the military
wives out there and he has also giving me more strength to hand in there until
he comes home to his 2 1/2 year old son and his 3 week old baby girl (who will
be two months old when he returns).
TO ALL THE WIVES OUT THERE. STAY STRONG FOR OUR MEN. E-MAIL THEM AS MUCH AS
POSSIBLE AND REMIND THEM EVERYDAY HOW MUCH YOU LOVE THEM AND RESPECT WHAT THEY
ARE DOING FOR OUR COUNTRY.
It sounds like nothing at all, but as you can see from this e-mail from my
husband it's does make a huge difference to them out on the boat alone.
