Today is Independence day. A day of celebration and festivity for most. But also a day of worry and hope for some of us.
To my brave solider-I know you tell me every time you call that Afghanistan isnt so bad. but I hear a sadness in your voice and I also know you’re trying to be strong. and you probably know that I’m holding back trying to be strong for you. Sometimes at night I cry myself to sleep. But I always pick myself up in the morning and tell myself that you are the bravest person I know. I love you more than words can ever express and I count the months, weeks, and days till your return.
Thank you to all who serve.
