    Salute to My Husband

    I want to salute my hero, my husband today on Veteran’s Day. He is Staff Sergeant James Varnum and he left the day after Election Day to fight for our country. Today on Veteran’s Day he is somewhere in Afghanistan making his way to his post and getting ready for nine months of hardship. I pray for his safe return as well as those of his soldiers fighting beside him.

    He is the love of my life and this is the least I could do for him on this special day. I want the country to hear his name and know how proud we all are of him and thankful to him for his service.

    He is a wonderful dedicated soldier and together over the past five years we have managed to blend our families and four children; we also added an adorable furry addition….his shorter companion….his dog Lola.

    We all love you baby! We’ve got your back here and stay safe!!! Can’t wait to see you….
