A Deployed Husband and Daddy To Be
My husband and I got stationed in Germany last year, which was already hard being away from our families. Then we found out he would be deploying, and then a month after that we found out we would be having a baby.
I never imagined our first deployment and first baby would be at the same time. He returns two weeks after my due date, so we’re not only praying for his safety over there, but that he makes it home to see his first born. I thank God everyday that I married someone so selfless and so strong, and I know no matter what we will get through anything life throws at us. We both have to spend the holidays, our anniversary and our baby’s milestone’s alone, but it will be worth it in the end, we’ll both come out of this stronger and more appreciative of the small things in life. God Bless you for your generosity and big heart Savannah, I can’t wait to see what the future holds for you.
Our Dad is Our Hero
Hi Savannah. Our mom told us to write to you about our dad. Our dad is our Hero! He is a Soldier with the National Guard. He has been in the Army for 20 years!!
This is our 3rd time going through a deployment. It is a very long time without our dad to help us with our homework, be there on holidays and special days and just to play with us. We miss our dad very much! Mommy says it’s ok to cry and sometimes we do. There are 4 kids in our family. My name is Lindsay and I’m 8, Conner is 7, Meghan is 5 and Amanda is 3. I try and help Meghan and Amanda when they are sad, even if I’m sad too. This time he is gone a long time. Mommy says it’s the WHOLE school year! I can’t wait for my Daddy to come home. We love him and miss him everyday!
Thank you for caring about our Dad and the rest of the Soldiers.
My name is Kayla and I’m 19. I recently just saw a video of what you did for your best friend and what you¹re doing for soldiers deployed in Afghanistan and it really touched my heart. So I’m writing you my story here it goes.
It was the first time my mom was ever deployed and I didn’t know how to handle it so the day she left it was my senior prom I ended up going but literally sat in the bathroom crying my eyes out my whole prom. It was a whole year before she¹d be home with us celebrating birthdays, holidays and just to play with us. I missed my mom so much. She missed my graduation and my first day of college but I knew she was there with me in my heart. Thank you so very much for having a big heart and caring for the rest of the soldiers and my mom and helping them get through rough times.
