A fellow Army wife on a support forum that I am on lost her husband in Afghanistan yesterday. He was home about a month ago on R&R and got to spend some nice, quality time with his wife and young son.
I can't imagine what it must be like for her. Some of the moderators on the board decided to take up a collection to buy a plant or tree of some sort for her, and due to the amount of donations so far, are probably going to do something for her son as well. It is amazing the support that has poured out for her.
My heart and prayers go out to her and her family.
