The true heroes are the ones we leave behind.
It's not that hard to walk away, knowing you're going to a War-zone. Trust me I know. That's not the hard part.
The ones who should be praised for their strength and courage are the ones who watch us leave and have to bare the burden of sorrow, and unknowing of what could happen to us over here.
This Blog is a praise to the ones we leave behind. The ones who deal with everyday problems on top of, their loved one being in harms way. They support us and give us strength to move on.
This country gives all the praise to the warrior who fights the battles on the battlefield.
But what of the ones who fight the battle at home.
All the families we leave behind to fight the battle of Love, for us, their husbands, fathers, brothers, and sons.
These women and children that we leave behind, are the true unsung heroes of the war.
The tears they shed on our behalf, and the burdens they bare, because we've chosen to go and fight, will not go unrecognized. Not while I'm around.
"Blessed is the man who hath the love of his family with him, for he shall never fight any battle alone."
This is a praise to the family that loves me,
and every other family out there having to fight the battle of Love.
Thank you for supporting us.
Special thanks to: Kristi Keim, Jordan Keim, Mallissa Johnson,
and all the other families who have loved ones fighting overseas.
