Supporting My Soldier

It wasn't until the fair came to my small town in Michigan and we put our hands over our hearts to pledge to flag at the rodeo when it hit me.... It hit me like a million bricks that this is MY soldier we're pledging too, along with my best friend (whose standing right beside me) whose fiance is currently deployed for the US Marines... It suddenly made me mad at all the kids and even adults who goof off and pay no respect during this time... I got teary eyed knowing that the love of my life is fighting for all of these people here, even the ones who don't deserve the good life they have... Be strong Girls, our men are amazing, strong, fearless soldiers... I am very thankful for each and every one of your men who have the courage to defend our country, through the good and the bad!!! I love and miss my Soldier..

Oh my goodness I know what you mean! Now that my fiance is in the military, I've found myself choking up whenever I hear the National Anthem! I was at the rodeo at the girl started singing and it took everything I had to hold it together through the entire song.
