Hi! My name is Ashley Smith and my fiancé, Aaron Sattler, is currently in Afghanistan. He is in the 82nd Airborne Division, which is known as “the largest parachute force in the free world” and it is based out of Fort Bragg, NC. He left on the 8th of April and I have never seen a bad day until then, but day after day it gets easier and more bearable, so to any women out there struggling to get through this, hang in there, because I am sure that the best is yet to come. He has taught me so many things and we continue to learn from each other everyday. He is everything I need and want in a man and I could not ask for anything more. In August of 2006, my soldier is due back to me and I will be ready and waiting with open arms. Aaron, baby, you are my best friend, my future husband, my rock and most of all, my beloved soldier. Wherever you are, I love you and I am so proud of you! I am always praying for you and all of our buddies that are deployed with you.
Proud Fiancé of Army Soldier
