The Greatest Generation - Proud of our Military

It's past midnight in Germany where I just spoke to the military spouses in Katterbach. They are facing multiple deployments into downrange, sometimes high risk areas and many are so young.

This is YOUR current Army and military, an all volunteer force--they know the risks and take them anyway. You would be proud of what I saw in the spouses...--courage, strength and hope.

Truly, the sacrifices we call upon them to make has got to mean I just spoke to "The Greatest Generation."

I so admire these heroes.

The message I brought them was from YOU, America. I told them that we loved them, we are proud of them, and together we are going to be all right.

Please remember the families of the Katterbach area as well as all military members and their families in your prayers.

Thank you Ellie Kay for sharing that message with them. I, too, believe this generation of military personnel will be viewed as "the greatest generation" one day.

Thank you so much Ellie Kay. My husband just deployed earlier this week and you were just what I needed. This is not my first deployment but it never seems to get easier. You made me realize that I truly am a Hero at Home. And the first thing I did today was tell my husband when he called, "I love you baby, I'm so proud of you, and not to worry we were going to be okay." Thank you so much Ellie Kay! And I even think I would like to go and skydive now just not with Jack Hammer strapped to me : )~ God bless you and your family!!!
