Medals are received for accomplishments, and they become symbols of experience---you can look at the uniform of someone in the military and know where he has been and what he has done. Like the military wives of the past, you experience challenges that stretch your physical, emotional, and spiritual resources. While it is an honor to serve your soldier, airman, marine, or sailor as he defends the freedom of America, it is not without sacrifice. And while no military service medals are handed out to military wives for their bravery, gallantry, heroism, or exceptional service, the rewards are greater than any medal could display. The life of the military wife is one that reaps exceptional benefits through personal character and leadership development, adventure, relationships, and opportunities for service. Your husband wears his medals on his uniform, but you wear medals over your heart.
Through these devotions, may you be blessed as you:
