Khowst Province, Afghanistan – A deployment to Afghanistan is no vacation and for newly-married couples it is especially hard.

“Obviously deployments are stressful,” said Cpl. Douglas Dalton, a native of Greenville, Texas. “Having Skype or receiving mail is great but nothing beats being able to hug your wife at the end of the day.”

Being a dual-military couple is one of the few instances where a soldier can deploy with their spouse.

Fort Campbell, KY – Taking a step back from the pile of the rubble mounded in front of him, a Soldier wipes the sweat from the tip of his nose and he can feel the muscles in his arms starting to burn. The affects of swinging the sledge hammer is tiring his muscles out but looking around his mind is strong.

Gazing into the empty bed of the once full moving truck, a Soldier rubs the dust from her hands and smiles broadly. Though her fingers are tender and her shoulders ache, her spirit is strong.
