Daughters waiting for daddy
I would like to salute my husband SPC Richard "Tank" McCarty, who is currently serving in Iraq. I want him to know that his 2 daughters and I miss him dearly and can't wait to see him again! Rick deployed when our baby was only 8 weeks old, so she is looking forward to meeting her daddy again!
