My husband of 4 years and best friend of 7 has been deployed twice to Iraq. The first time a year after I met him and the second 6 months after we were married. He has stood tall and strong for so long and I want everyone to know he is an amazing soldier and man. I salute him for everything he has done and there are not enough words to express just how proud of him I am. He blessed me with our beautiful daughter almost three years ago and took in my son. A huge thank you goes from my heart to my husband Staff SGT Eric Zimmerman.
