Matt had always wanted to join the military. But falling in love and getting married and having babies kept getting in the way. Two years ago he finally followed after his dream and joined the Vermont Air National Guard. It's not hard core but his knowledge as an engineer is helping the VTANG base become more energy efficient. I'm pretty big on being Eco-Friendly so I'm super proud of that. He looks forward to using what he is learning to help underdeveloped countries one day as well.
One day Matt will be called away for a longer period of time. For a more serious situation. Then I will know the true meaning of sacrifice. But for now, I am proud to stand along side him as his wife. Willing to let him go so that others may live. Willing to be lonely so that others may be free. Willing to worry so others can breathe a sigh of relief for the first time in their lives. I'm willing. He's willing. And that it what makes us a military family. That is what makes me proud to be the wife of Second Lieutenant Mathew Lehman.
A very blessed Veteran's Day to all who have served and are currently serving to make this country what is. To make me who I am. For being you.
A big thank you to Melissa of Peanut Butter in my Hair for including us in her collage of military families and for her lovely post about Veteran's Day. I do not feel like I deserve to be mentioned after such wonderful words about our military heroes.
