Military spouses remembered for their contributions

Services for Real Estate Pros with Virtual Ease

Many people will never know what it is like to be a military spouse. There is much more to us than what you see. Being a military spouse means the world to me. I have the greatest admiration for my husband and our sailors. I know when he is at sea he would rather be home with me. I know when he is home with me he is also worried about his sailors at sea. When my husband and I started to date the first thing he said, was I will not give up my life in the Navy, you will have to accept this is who I am. Well ten years later I still support and accept who he is. We have moved from California to Maryland and then to Texas. I know the job he does is a lifestyle and not one for every person. I have seen spouses at their best and their worst. I have been to homecomings and memorial services but I would never change my life. I enjoy being a military spouse. it is a great moment in my heart to hear that there is a proposed monument that would honor the sacrifices of America's unsung military heroes –the military spouse, who tends the homefront while military personnel are away protecting us.
