5 Years of Service

“As challenging and difficult as military life can be for both the service member and the family, I am nevertheless so grateful for my husband’s service, sacrifice, fortitude, and desire to provide well for his family through being in the Guard. Though this sometimes means times of separation and deployments, which are hard, I know that he has currently chosen this life so as to provide his family with the assortment of benefits which come from being in the United States military – financial provisions, good health insurance, retirement benefits, etc. Though I have struggled at times with the separation side of things and fought against him, thinking that providing for our family has to mean he is with our family at all times, the Lord has shown me that this is His will for our family right now, that Owen is in the military not because he wants to go on deployments and be away on business trips sometimes, but because he feels called to provide for our family’s future in these ways, to serve his country, and to do so in the Guard, which provides him with the ability to be home with us far more than active-duty personnel usually get to be. I’m grateful for my husband’s wisdom, consideration, love, and vision that has gone into making these career decisions, and it’s a joy to publicly thank and honor him for his service both to his family, as well as to his country.” – Rebekah Hargraves, wife
