Armed Forces Day: Saturday, May 18th, 2013

by Audrey Kelsey


My youngest son, Nathan, is currently on his fourth deployment, serving now in Afghanistan.  He deployed when his first child, Audrey Grace, was just three weeks old! I know, first hand, that the families of those in the Armed Forces are serving their country too.  The wives, husbands, and children left behind, while their loved one serves, are making a sacrifice as well.

My son is totally committed to his service.  He has never complained.  He doesn’t get into the political aspects, but considers it his privilege and duty to serve!  I am impressed and awed by his attitude.  And of course, I am proud of my son.  He personifies the phrase, “Greater love has no man than this, that he would lay down his life for his friend (country).”

On Armed Forces Day, Wheeler’s would like to the opportunity to say thank you, to all the men and women of our U.S. military, for your service in support of our country.  We are grateful for your sacrifice and dedication!
