This iReport is part of an assignment:
Veterans in focus
To my Love on Veterans Day
- Jamescia, CNN iReport producer
Mark and I have worked hard to support each other in reaching our goals. I know that the stories of the deployments told by Mark and his friends have helped me keep my complaints in perspective! Simple daily tasks like being able to take a real shower and using the computer or phone every day is a luxury compared to what they go through for weeks at a time when they deploy. Not to mention, they are always dedicated to doing hard and sometimes unimaginably tragic work on a daily basis. After you know what all they have experienced it is difficult to find anything wrong with a rough day filled with homework or a rude customer at work. Therefore, for this Veterans Day, I want to express my sincere support and thanks to my love, Lance Corporal Garland, and the rest of the United States military for all that they willingly sacrifice. The service men and women I know personally are all very hard workers and do so selflessly, and their sacrifices are greatly appreciated. I am a girlfriend, daughter, granddaughter, niece, cousin, and friend to many active and retired military service men and women, and I know that all of these people deserve to be appreciated on this day and every day.
