    Salute to troops

    Soldier, Firefighter, Father...24/7

    My Husband is a very loving, very special person. We are both active duty Air Force Non-Commissioned Officers (NCOs) at Whiteman Air Force Base in Missouri. As I am currently deployed for 12 months, Alex is at home taking care of our four children aged in range from our oldest Daughter Rihana at 13, our twin boys at 10 and our baby at 16 months old. While he is a single parent 24/7 he is also a full-time active duty military member and a 24/7 volunteer firefighter. He is the best man to do the job and still smiles at the end of the day. Whether he is up at 0530 in the morning, getting the kids ready for school, to work by 0730, out of work at 1530 and headed to sports practices for three kids from 1630 to 2000 and then back home to make sure dinner is ready before the kids go to bed and then do it all over again...he does it all without complaining. I love him and our family both in blood and extended would like to honor him by submitting him for your Salute to troops. You couldn't find a better nomination in my books!
