'Loves her daddy and the Army'

This is my husband, Staff Sergeant Steven Houghton with our five-year-old daughter, Kennedy. We are stationed at Ft Bragg, NC. This year he's home for his birthday. Two tours in Iraq and one to Korea under his belt. Third tour is coming up in Jan. Kennedy loves her daddy and the Army. We are very proud of all the great things he's done and he's proud of us too! He'll be gone for 15 months on his next tour...he'll be home after she turns seven!

-- Josie Houghton of Hope Mills, North Carolina
This is one of the most loving families I know. The Mommy/wife is an amazing woman, she encourages me to take charge of life and make the most out of my time. Thank you Josie! I love you!
Every weekday morning on Headline News' Morning Express, anchor Robin Meade and her team do a shout-out to U.S. troops by showing off photos and videos sent in by their loved ones. Tune in every hour between 6 and 10 a.m. to see the salutes on air, or click through the archives on this page.
