Via CDR Salamander, we are reminded of the personal, crushing cost of war. Marine Corporal Jonathan Daniel Porto was killed in Afghanistan. He was the husband of Mrs P, who blogs at "A Little Pink in a World of Camo."
Those good women, who faithfully maintain the home front while their men are out flying, riding, walking, or sailing into harm's way, are to be respected and cherished. Their loss is our shared loss.
This young widow wrote that she couldn't find the words to describe it. Then she went on to write them. What strength and courage. Her husband was blessed to have her as a wife and her daughter is blessed to have her as a mother.
My heart goes out to you Mrs. P. May God keep and protect you.
