Every year, U.S. military service members deploy around the world to aid in operations designed to keep our country safe. It takes courage, sacrifice and dedication to serve in the Armed Services. Perhaps no one understands that more than their families. Families stay back to keep the household running smoothly so their service member can focus on the mission. Early childhood years, holidays and special events are often missed so it makes the time spent together precious and the memories made upon return more special.
