From the front lines, to the home front, to life after the military, we all have our stories. As I write this, I’m in my hometown with my parents who are helping with my children, while my husband is deployed to Afghanistan.

Each military member, their families and those who support them have a story to tell. Even those you might not expect, such as those who provide medical services, are a part of the story.

My Military Medical Story

When my second son was born a month early by emergency c-section, my husband was away. My OB was there by my side the entire time and even came in at 4:30am on his day off to support this military family by delivering our new baby. Later I learned from a labor and delivery nurse that my doctor  never came in if he was off shift. She said, “You need to know that this was the first time we ever saw him do this. You were a special case.”

At one point in my hospital stay, my son was in the NICU, my husband was working to navigate military flights to join us, and I had no support person in the room — I was completely alone. My doctor came in, found me, and hugged me as I cried — I’ll never forget his exceptional heart and care during a beautiful, yet challenging time.
