Yesterday I spoke with a Watsontown woman whose husband is on his fifth overseas deployment.

She was recently named PA’s National Guard military spouse of the year, and she’s up for the national title.

Voting for the national title is Feb. 5 – and here’s a link to her profile.

Kathy said there will be link to the voting system on Feb. 5 on that profile page.

If Kathy makes it to the title of National Guard spouse of the year, she will compete for the overall title in March.

Let’s give her the recognition she deserves.

Holidays away from home

I may be spending the holiday in the office, but at least I get to go home at the end of my shift and see my family. For some people, that’s not an option.

Today in the Daily Item, is the story of families who are dealing with family members deployed overseas.

Sunday night, I visited with the Laubachs, whose son Bryan is on his fifth holiday deployment. Bryan’s father, Murray, was proud to show the military photo of his son showing Bryan’s military service ribbons:

Bryan is a National Guardsman serving in Kuwait and has been in the military for about 25 years, his mother said.

Bryan’s dedication, and the dedication of all our military men and women, is something to think about this holiday.

Have a Merry, Merry Christmas everybody!
