This military salutes goes to US Marine Staff Sergeant Nicole R. Richard for Mother's Day. She is an awesome Marine but an equally awesome Mother and military spouse. She deployed to Iraq for a year when her daughter was 4 years old and her son was 11 months old. She is always putting others before herself. She has a heart of gold. She is beautiful on the inside as well as the outside. Her sacrifice for her nation and her family has not gone unnoticed. We Love You Marine Mom!!
