My name is Kim George, 18, and my husband, PFC Kenton George, 20, has been in Iraq since the first of February 2005. He is a 4-64 Mortar of the 3rd Infantry Division of the Army, of Fort Stewart, Ga. We were married December 23, 2004 exactly 2 months after my 18th birthday and 4 months after we started dating. He left for Kuwait on January 30, then was moved into Baghdad a few weeks later. He is presently training the Iraqi Army in Baghdad. We get to talk nearly every day and are frequent emailers and letter writers. So much so that some of the guys keep telling him he's going to get carpal tunnel from writing so much. He's truly an amazing man and really believes in the job he's doing. Its so hard to be away from him and were both counting down the days until he comes home. I miss him so much and truly consider him to be a hero of this great country he's so proud to serve. He's definitely my hero, the love of my life, and my soulmate. I'm so proud of him and thankful that I got to marry him. We're all praying for his safe return and the safe return of all the military personnel.
I am attaching a picture of Kenton and me during our wedding. Thank you for listening to my story, and I'll be praying for all you wives, fiances, and girlfriends out there that are pushing forward in your lives during this deployment counting down the days until your heros return.
