I feel fortunate that while Hubby is sailing out there on some ocean- at least I know he is somewhat safer than those in Iraq and Afghanistan. He has only been to Afghanistan once for a short time, and only after he came home did I find out they were fired upon (everyone was ok.) That was scary enough. I can't imagine what is like for those in imminent danger on a daily basis, and what it is like for their loved ones back home. Every phone call, every knock on the door would send me into a panic. My prayers go out to all of them- for a safe return home and happy reunions.
Reunions are the best- I know that much. I get choked up just thinking about it. I can't wait for my sailor to come back home!! Happy Veterans Day Honey, I love you and I am so proud!
