My husband, SGT James Bell, U.S. Army, is from Tracy City, TN and serving active duty at Fort Riley, KS with 1st CAB, Charlie Company "Dust Off" as a Medevac Crew Chief. He previously served at the Korengal Valley Oupost in Afghanistan with 4th Infantry Division, where he was wounded by a grenade round that hit just several feet away from him. He survived with nine shrapnel wounds and was awarded the Purple Heart. We have two daughters - 9 year old Isa and 4 month old Lottie. SGT Bell is currently training for upcoming deployment back to Afghanistan. He is my best friend and a Godly husband and father. He serves the Lord, as well as our country. I love him and I am so proud of my brave hero who has given so much and loves with all he has.
