Family, friends, and sometimes even troops themselves send I-Report salutes nearly every day to U.S. military serving their country away from home. Take a look below as family and friends share stories of the troops they love.

Dear Robin, I watch your "Salute to Troops" segment every morning and always think of my sister, who is in the middle of her 15-month tour in Baghdad right now. Her name is Kristen Vahle and she will be 26 years old on November 30. She is serving as the personnel officer for the 3rd Corps Headquarters Battalion, out of Ft. Hood, TX. Please let her know that her family loves her and misses her, and we can't wait to have her home in a few months.
