My hero is my husband of 20 years. He joined the National Guard at the age of 32 in 2005. He deployed to both Iraq and recently to Afghanistan at the same time our Marine son deployed. (Also my hero) I admire his dedication and strength to do what he needs to for our country and also for his fellow soldiers and he continues to do so today. It takes a true Hero to not only protect his family but also serve and protect his country. He will always have my full dedication and support.
