This is a touching story and a great reminder to pray for those who serve their country as well as the sacrifice the family makes for our benefit. As Veteran's Day approaches your story can serve as a wonderful reminder.
How difficult life must be for the loved ones of our armed services members!

This was a sweet story that really tapped into that sacrificial love.
Your letter gave me "goose bumps". What a lucky wife and infant son. The letter from this hero speaks for so many in his situation. You are a good writer. Keep 'em comin' ;)
You did a very nice job with this entry. Anything that calls to mind the great sacrifice made by our troops and their families is from God. Thank you for writing this.
I liked your story very much. My son is a veteran of the first Gulf War. He left a little girl for twelve months. Needless to say, I was deeply touched by this. You did a good job. Thanks for writing.
I am so glad he was not killed in this story!

If you showed more of how the MC was emotionally reacting, this story would be even better!
