'The love of my life'
I met the love of my life in middle school and married him almost a decade later, after he graduated from West Point and was commissioned as an officer in the U.S. Army. My husband, Matt Miller, has been deployed with the 82nd Airborne to Iraq since August 2006. Earlier today, he was promoted to Captain. I am so proud of him and all his accomplishments, and can't wait to celebrate with him when he finally comes home this November.
