Soldiers' Angels
October 28, 2011

Soldiers Angels are definitely heaven sent! In 2009, I married the love of my life who decided to be an active duty soldier in the Army. His decision to serve meant I had to move away from everyone I knew and the only place I'd ever called home. After arriving to his (and my) first duty station, we discovered his unit had deployed to Afghanistan and he had to go. Then I found out that I was pregnant! So, there I was pregnant with my first child and alone in a new place with my husband in combat. I found out about Soldiers Angels and Operation Top Knot. As my son's birth neared, I received presents in the mail from complete strangers; some were even handmade! I couldn't believe the kindness that was showed to me. I find myself overcome with emotion when I think about this organization, the wonderful things they do and the amazing people that support them. There are so many programs that they have in place to support soldiers and their families. I wish that more people were aware of them. I look forward to being an angel to someone and giving the same joy that was given to me.
