As an army wife, I am keenly aware of the challenges and difficulties faced by our armed forces. I am also intimately aware of the sacrifices made by the spouses they leave behind.

They are The Silent Ranks. They may not wear a uniform but they serve their country with every breath they take. There is nothing harder than sending the one person who means the most to you off to far away lands, never knowing if that will be the last embrace. The last kiss. The last goodbye.

These women exude a strength unlike any I have known before and I wanted to honor that somehow. Each women in this series was asked a simple question: “What is the one thing you want people to know about you as an army wife?” The words are their own.

This on-going project is my tribute to you, ladies. For your strength, your courage, your spirit. Thank you.
