I just wanted to post a message to those that know Soldiers that are deployed to the combat theatre. Many of us appreciate their sacrifices, and their dedication to the Nation. However, many forget or innocently just do not realize the sacrifices that the wives make to support their husbands and the country. Wives hold the house together and take care of the children. It's swimming lessons, soccer practice, school, dinner, baths, and night time stories. They also take care of fevers, sniffles, and scraped knees and bruises. Not to mention house repairs, ensuring the car's oil is changed tires replaced and everything that goes along with it. Husbands aren't there to comfort their wives when they are having a bad day, hurting for some reason, or just needs assurance that she is appreciated and needed. It takes a special woman to handle all these important things in the absence of the man of the house. So when we all think of those battle hardened soldiers that are out doing the hard work in the trenches, let's also remember and honor the wives of these men that sacrifice so much as well..
