'Miss him every minute of every day'
This is my fiance, Cpl. Dallas D. Miller (top, second from the right, wearing glasses) and his squad out at sea. They're all in infantry and will be arriving at Iraq any day. ... My fiance has been out on ship for almost one and a half months. It's been the hardest thing I've ever had to deal with.
I won't be able to see him for 6 more months, at least. I pray for him and the other troops every day. I'm waiting for his safe return so that we may get married and begin our lives together with my 8-year-old son in Austin, Texas. I miss him every minute of every day!
