'My hunny bunny'
This is my hunny bunny, Master Sgt Anthony "Tony" Ramirez, 28 years old, with the Hawaii Air National Guard. He was recognized as "performer of the week" (he hangs out in the office after work and practices a song on his guitar that he said he would learn and play for me when he gets home in February and didn't expect to get an "award" for it).
This is deployment number three for him (1st to DG, 2nd to Iraq). He volunteered for this deployment to Afghanistan to oversee maintenance activities in a comm sq. He's the best husband in the world and I miss him very very much. Our children: 4,5,7 years old draw pictures and make cards and crafts for him every other day to send and pray and cry for him. This has been the hardest deployment for us. Thank you for honoring him. Aloha and God Bless.
