    My Husband, My Hero


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     djdouglas is honoring her husband, Sergeant Michael Douglas. One of the greatest things she has learned from her husband is, 'That no matter how much something hurts, I can survive.'
    - Jamescia, CNN iReport producer

    I met my Husband, Michael Douglas, in 2007. In 2008 I lost my oldest Son, SGT William Allmon, when he died in Iraq.
    Mike had served in the Army. He took care of everything for me. He walked me through the process and was there every minute, right by my side through the nightmare I was living.
    The nightmare never ends when you lose a child, so for over four years, Mike has been a solid support for me. He encourages me to always share Will with others so that they see him as a real life person and not just another name on a monument or a number in a stack of Government papers.
    He has been there to listen to my rants, hold my hand and wipe my tears.
    He truly makes my burden of loss easier to carry.
    He is my Veteran Hero.
