For all of you who love your soldier or airman or sailor or marine, who cry as many tears of pride as you do of heartache, who stay committed, who recognized the difficult journey ahead of you and accepted it anyway, who refuse to be defeated,
For all of you who hold your tongue when needed and share your journey when most necessary, who use your time to strengthen this military family by strengthening your own, who hold the hand of your hero while shaking the hands of the heroes that stand beside him,
For all of you who are determined, for all of you that cry into his pillow and then wake up to take on the next day, who will not give up, who will not lose faith, who keep grace, who honor the sacrifice, who live the sacrifice, who will thrive along this journey,
I am honored to stand among you. Thank you for all you do!
Happy Military Spouses' Appreciation Day!
