  1. Congratulations Courtney for all your recognition for all your hard work helping while your father is away on deployment. Not only are we all so very proud of your dad for what he is doing, we are very proud of what you are doing here at home to help support your mom as well.

  2. This is awesome, what a wonderful thing to do. We tend to focus on the soldiers, whatever their roles & sometimes the spouses. But these kids are also giving up so much & they had no choice.
    As a Mom, I know, it really is the little things; all piled up that get to us. Its awesome that Courtney sees those and helps out.
    Jesus loves you BEST Courtney!!

    1. Hi Carolyn;

      Thanks for stopping by and thanks for your comment too. We are here to encourage military families and consider it an honor and privilege to salute these military children each week here too. So many of them jump right in and help out when their parents are deployed and we enjoying giving them the applause and recognition they deserve.

      Take care!
      Dr. Rus
