My dearest Zachary,
You are one of the loves of my life. I wish I could take all the hurt and the nightmares away. I wish I could renew your relationship with your mom. She loves you very much but does not know how to handle the anger, the foul language and the threats.
You did so many great things in Iraq and I thank you for keeping us free of terrorist.
I know your life is hard right now but I would do anything to help you.
Like the song from Rascal Flatts I will stand by you.
Love you so much

This blog post is part of The Love Letter Campaign... a project started by FamilyOfaVet.com to encourage those who love a hero to write a letter sharing their story (where they started, what they've faced together, and why their love endures). It's not just for spouses, but also for parents, siblings, caregivers, and friends. It's about telling the "rest" of our stories... stories that continue despite PTSD, TBI, and the challenges of life after combat.
