“A hero is someone who has given his or her life to something bigger than oneself”
-Joseph Campbell

18 years ago, I kissed a guy goodbye and watched as the bus drove him away to one of his greatest life adventures. And challenges.

18 years ago, I cried the first tears of many. Tears of pride, longing, uncertainty, excitement.

18 years ago, this guy answered the call to protect my freedom. And yours.

And for that, I am ever grateful.

Thank you for your unwavering dedication and commitment. To your country. Our daughter. And I.

We are better people, because of your example.
