    Salute to troops

    My hero

    My husbands name is Sgt Joe Lawrence. He deployed to Kuwait right before our first anniversary in March. He is a Geospacial Engineer. He is missed by his 3 grandchildren and especially me. This tour is especially hard because it's his first as a newly married person . I would love to have the story printed to surprise him since we can never seem to connect. I'm either working while he is sleeping or he is sleeping while I'm working. The internet hardly ever works and it's just very hard. . I have many health issues so he reenlisted so I would have good health care and I could be taken care of. He is a selfless, loving, giving man. He is my hero!!!!!
