'Watch over Daddy'
Daddy and 2 year old Jesse pose for the camera the night before Daddy is deployed. One last kiss to last until Daddy comes home. Jesse prays for Daddy every night asking God to "Watch over Daddy".
My husband, Duane Fulk, is currently serving with Seabee unit NMCB 15 in Iraq. This is his second deployment as a reservist. He is a gunner for his unit so we pray for his safety constantly. I am so proud of him for his service to our family and to this country. He is a "true hero" in our eyes as are all the soldiers currently serving all over the world.
I hope that our nation will remember that though they may not agree with this war, that our troops need our support. And though the media spins it that everything is bad over there, there is also a lot of good going on that we never hear about unless you have a soldier who is serving there.
