First of all I would like to say Thank You for your contribution to our service members and their families. I have just ordered my flag. When I do receive it, I plan on displaying it proudly in the biggest window of my house, my living room window for all to see. My husband is PFC Martin Baladez Jr. This is his 2nd year in the U.S.Army. He is currently deployed in Iraq fighting for our great country. We have 4 beautiful children 3 girls and 1 boy. This is our first deployment and is very tough on all of us, but especially our children. At times they cry their lil eyes out and can’t understand why daddy can’t come home from work, or why we cant talk to him or see him everyday like we used to. These are the times where I have to put my feelings aside and put on my brave mommy face and comfort them and explain things to them in a way that they can understand. There are times when I myself just want to break down and cry. It is not easy being a Mom & a Dad for our children. But now when I look at our Blue Star Flag I will remember why my Loving Husband joined the Army. He joined so that our kids could have a better Life and Future as well as many other families around the world and, I will hold pick myself up and hold my head high and proudly tell the world. I AM A PROUD ARMY WIFE.

THANK YOU AGAIN FOR EVERYTHING YOU ARE DOING FOR MANY FAMILIES AROUND THE WORLD JUST LIKE OURS!!!
