“When my husband left on his deployment, our 6-year-old son could not walk on his own. He has cerebral palsy. Doctors originally said that he would never walk or do much of anything. While daddy was away, he learned to walk. For his homecoming, we set it up for Michael to walk to his daddy for the first time ever! We kept the fact that he could walk a secret the whole time his dad was gone!”
The Holidays are supposed to be a time of happiness, warmth, and family, but for those who can’t make it home, it’s often takes a toll on the family cheer. It’s the hardest on a soldier away in Afghanistan and their family. Marine Corps Master Sgt. Robert Allen, deployed to Camp Leatherneck, Afghanistan wrote this emotional and patriotic Christmas song, titled A Marine’s Christmas, to his wife to express his longing and love.
