I made this as a comment on a blog and sent it as a bulletin. However, I feel so strongly about it that I want to make sure as many as possible read it...


I don't want to complain about all the praise and stuff that is lavished on our troops...they more than deserve it. And, yes, they are apart from their loved ones at the holidays but they are with many that are in the same boat and much is done to shower them to attention at this time. The real un-sung heroes are the families that are left behind. The sacrifice they make in supporting their beloved as they serve the rest of us...the little attention and support they receive as they go without their father, mother, sweetheart, son, daughter, etc. So, when you say a prayer or thank a soldier, add a little something in for the family that is also sacrificing. Please.

You are right about the importance of the families of our soldiers doing their part while their family members are serving all of us. I think many of us remember them, but we don't give them a equal amount of attention in public.

Having been married to an Army officer I know the sacrifices his family made for him to pursue his career. The sacrifices increased when he was in the midst of war. When he was alive he did many unspoken things to assist the families left behind. I try to maintain his legacy which is one small way to remember our un-sung heroes.

HEAR! HEAR! Absolutely 100% correct and needed. As the mother of a Marine everything you said here is correct. Thank you. Your prayers are very welcome and needed. The emotions we deal with daily, I would not wish on anyone.
Thank you and Kudo's to you Looking4ever.

That is an excellent thought. The families are sacrificing just as much, if not more.

Giving you a kudo.

My two brothers are serving overseas right now, just as I have done in the past. It was very hard on my parents and still is, you see when you are serving overseas you know what is going on. You know if you are under fire, you know what conditions you are living in, but the families, well they only have the news reports and they are getting few and far between. They wait for those phone calls to know that their loved one are alive and well. Very nice blog. From my family and I, we Thank you.

Very good point sweetie and as RangeRider said being there you know what's going on, here we don't. I pray for every one of our service men and women AND their families. Here's a kudo for making such a wonderful point.

I agree the emotions will run high while my son is gone.

Thanks Sunny.............My son is awaiting final deployment orders, and while he is still stateside, he's as far away from home as the Army could send him and still keep him in the lower 48 states! Last month was his 20th birthday. The first we've ever spent apart. It was without a doubt one of the hardest days I've had to endure in the past 20 years. As the holidays are fast approaching I can already feel the change. I'm not as anxious to decorate this year. (usually by now I'm already detangling lights, and unpacking the tree and ornaments) Our first Thanksgiving apart. Our first Christmas apart. It won't be the same without him here!
He has put in for leave in January, so he can be home in time for my birthday and says we'll celebrate Christmas then............I'm counting down the days!

BIG kudos! I hate that I can only give one. Being someone who's experienced both sides of this, I know exactly how those brave men and women feel, and I know exactly how my parents felt back then.
I'm an Army vet who spent a lot of time overseas and a little time in a combat zone. I was not home for the holidays for 7 years in a row! Hated it!
Now, my son is serving in the Navy, and we won't get to see him for the second year in a row. But these are the sacrifices necessary for our country to be protected from those who want to kill us.
I am willing to stand behind and support any of my 5 boys that wants to volunteer for military service..nothing is more honorable.
Thanks L4E!
