This iReport is part of an assignment:
Salute to troops
Taking care of business
On that note, I would like to salute my husband, Mike Roe. Mike is an extremely devoted father to two daughters, 4 and 1, and a loving husband. Mike enlisted in the fall of 2008, and left for basic training when our oldest was 10 weeks old. He deployed in February of 2011 (the picture is him and our oldest right before he left) and will be leaving again before the end of the year. As hard as it is being away from him, I know he is doing what he has to do to take care of his family and protect our country. I couldn't be more proud to call him my husband. Not only is he my husband, he is my hero. I can't imagine being away from these girls for an hour, much less a year at a time. He takes it in stride, and knows he is working towards the greater good. Being in the Army has always been a dream of his, and I am thankful that I get to witness him living his dream every single day.
