BEALE AIR FORCE BASE, Calif. --
"We got engaged last Christmas in Yosemite. Then we got married in May, moved out here in June, and he was deployed in July. This is a first for everything with me. It's my first time being away from home and my first experience with deployment. The hardest day of my life was the day I had to put down my 17 year old dog, but this deployment is the hardest thing I have ever had to experience. It's hard on him as well, but I can't show weakness. I have to continually stay strong for him. If I could be with him this Christmas I would want to just spend quality time with him, I would tell him I love him, he is so strong and I am so proud of him."
