Dear Abby

Make sure to read the Dear Abby letter today:

SOLDIER SINGS PRAISE TO HIS WIFE -- A TRUE AMERICAN HERO
I'm not saying my wife walks on water -- although she swims well -- but a lot of people send messages over here to the soldiers saying, "Thank you for your service." I personally think the unsung heroes are the ones who fill the shoes of the soldiers when they are deployed.

I wish all of the married soldiers could have spouses as good as LOVING SOLDIER IN IRAQ's. I am also very glad that he knows how much she does. Not only does the soldier need support and respect but so does the rest of the family.
