As a proud Navy wife I want to take a minute to thank all the servicemen and women who have served their country and helped to protect our freedom. As this cartoon rightly states, to me you do a lot of the work, and we get the benefits.
Again, as a proud Navy wife I also want to thank the families of these veterans who have stayed by the stuff allowing their men and women to do their jobs effectively. Last year my husband was deployed for eight months (not including the months and weeks prior of out-of-town training he was gone for)and I learned a lot about what it takes to let your loved one go and serve their country.
It's not easy, and some make the ultimate sacrifice and never see their loved one return, but we appreciate the sacrifice and are grateful and proud of those who serve at home while their loved ones serve in our armed forces.
Have a good day and God Bless America!
