I wanted to share this picture with you. It depicts my granddaughter, Kaylee, running to her Daddy, Sgt. Michael Aros-Truhe, upon his return from Afghanistan. That's one happy 3-year-old. The picture was taken by his wife, Kelly, a fine military spouse, who like so many of them, who has kept their marriage thriving through three long deployments. (The first two were to Iraq.) 
I would like your readers to know that military families feel privileged to have a service member among them and share a bond that comes from knowing first-hand what a free democracy demands of its citizens.  
With great respect for all the veterans and military families of our area,
Chris Truhe
