Huge shout out to my cousin! This is him and his wife! She just got orders to Italy so they’ll be moving soon. But I just wanted to show you guys an extremely SUCCESSFUL dual military couple, with two kids, who got married at 18, and started out at the bottom in a different branch, the army.

I am so proud of them, and I look up to both them so much.

My heart stopped when I saw this….I can’t imagine

I almost didn’t reblog this but I had to.

All my love to those who serve this great nation and to the families for all they do to support them.

My dad always was so quiet after coming home on days he had to do this.

I almost skipped this because it breaks my heart. But then I decided that’s kind of the best reason to reblog. My heart and prayers go out to everyone who has had to endure either side of this moment. 

I honestly couldn’t thank men and women who serve enough. And especially their families because of this
