This national magazine is distributed to 400,000 National Guard soldiers.
I was interviewed by Rachel Gladstone the Staff writer for the magazine last summer. Rachel took the time not only ask me questions about my experiences with deployment, she interviewed my entire family on how deployment effected them. When she asked me questions about my experience it took me back in time of my daughter’s deployment. I got to tell you I had tears in my eyes. This surprised me . I thought I was over being emotional, it’s been almost two and half years ago now. I think when deployment is over, you think it’s over. But what I learned about deployment you never really forget the feelings and emotions you had during that time. For me, that’s OK. I survived a challenging yet rewarding time in my life.
I am so happy that the media and the military are starting to recognize the families that support our military.
So here is to all of you out there supporting your military loved one and family.
I hope you enjoy the article.
