I, too, am misty-eyed over this story. What an example to others this couple is! I live in Phoenix, AZ, and would like to know from Annette how I can help her office at Luke AFB. I am disabled civilian and not reliable on a day-to-day basis, but perhaps I could write to or visit the wounded when I am able to.

I read an article someone posted on Facebook which led me to this story. But I originally wanted to post a question about the true statistics about infidelity in the military, which is what people were discussing on the thread I was on, and what in the world could be done to prevent it when couples were separated for long periods of time.

While the Slaydons are an inspirational and courageous couple, I no longer think that they are the norm, especially with so many very young couples getting married just prior to training in another location or to deployment.

Please pass this comment on to Annette Slaydon. And I would also appreciate some feedback on the issue of infidelity.

Thank you and God Bless all who have served our country! I salute you.
