Family, Holidays

He’s More Than a Veteran to Me

I’m the wife of a retired United States Marine. During his twenty-one years I had my fair share of tearful goodbyes mixed in with missed holidays, birthdays and anniversaries. I also had many sleepless nights, and days being glued to the news, and the worry that he was OK. I also got to experience those wonderful homecomings, and the relief of knowing he was finally home.

I have such a deep love and respect for Dean, and my sense of pride I feel for him is difficult to put into words. He gave so much bravely, unselfishly and honorably. He is so much more than a Veteran to me, he’s my guy.

Today is Veteran’s Day – and to him and all those who served and are serving – Thank You.
