We are thankful for the men and women who have sacrificed so much and fought for our freedom. Will you join SPIRIT and recognize some of our local Military Heroes? Today we are recognizing Andy Barto. His wife, Dena, sent us the story below:
I want to recognize my husband for the sacrifices he makes to provide for us. He works long hours and is often away for a while. I know he longs to be near our daughters. He started his time in the Army as a young single man just out of high school then we got married in his early 20’s. It was hard to be apart during a deployment but I think his biggest challenge now at 30 is spending so much time away from his young kids. The girls miss him so much but he keeps going. My husband is hard working and I admire his willingness to not only keep my family safe but our nation as well. Sometimes I wish he came home at a regular time each day and didn’t take off for a month with almost no notice. I know God has called him for a greater purpose. His time in the Army has allowed him to mentor other soldiers and I think he has been a wonderful influence on his peers. I am proud of my solider and I can’t wait till I see him again.
SPIRIT 105.3 would like to thank GEICO for helping us recognize Military Heroes.
