Military Wife

Homefront Six did one of the hardest things a wife can do this week: stand with two young children at her side and hug and kiss her husband goodbye as he goes off to war.

HFS was my roommate at the MilBlog Conference. She's a great lady, and a fine military wife--no-nonsense, adaptable, strong, funny, and wise. Like any good woman she looked around her at the unit send-off and found she was proud and honored to be a part of the strong and courageous families who stood with her.

She has a tough year ahead of her, but I know she will come through with flying colors. Please go visit her and show her how much gratitude, love, support and respect she and her family will have during the year ahead.
