An Important Day


Today I have a wonderful privilege - a windfall moment. I am meeting my first soldier from Iraq who I served as an angel for during her second deployment. We're going to dinner. She's getting married in April. She ships out for her third deployment in June. She's been to Iraq twice before. She may be headed there again. She told me that she thinks our paths were meant to cross. She has a young daughter that she's been away from almost half her life. How can this be right? She's my hero.

She's your hero? I'm sure she feels the same way about you. That's a fine thing you've done.

Please tell her I said "Thank you for your service" for me. I am proud of all our soldiers and hope they all come home soon.

It's good of you to support her, and I wish her--along with her fellow soldiers--the best of luck.

I can't imagine, perhaps somewhat sadly, giving so much to someone else. Maybe it's my age, or my insistance that it's my age when it might just be a selfish personality, but it must be an incredible feeling. Perhaps your paths were meant to cross, but hopefully for more than just you being there to help her out.

Nice post, WFW. I understand the concept of the volunteer army, but I can't think of another instance in history when mothers of small children have been sent off to war. I think it says something unspeakable about us. I also thank her for her service, and you for recognizing her.
