Good things for those who wait!

I'm dedicating this recognition to my boyfriend Spc. Benjamin Merced who is part of the Massachusetts National Guard 42nd Military Police Co. serving in Iraq. I want him to know that I miss him very much and that I'm counting down the days til we can be together again. He is my heart and I am very proud to be his girlfriend. My prayers go out to him and everyone else in his unit, as well as all the other members of the US military serving overseas. Stay safe and take care. To everybody who has a loved one that has been deployed keep in mind that the separation will only make your relationship stronger and good things come to those who wait. "I miss you baby and I'm thinking about you everyday!"
