Every year, we stop to thank our nation’s veterans for their service. However, this year, I would like to take a moment to thank the spouses of our veterans. They may not put their lives on the line for our country, but they sacrifice in their own ways.
Spouses send their loved ones into harms way for months or years at a time. They move on a moment’s notice from post to post. They take care of their homes, their children, and deal with the loneliness, the worry and the waiting. And when their loved ones return, a new struggle often begins.
So to all the partners and spouses sacrificing so that others can serve our country, thank you.
