Our Family's Hero

My children and I would love to have our soldier Sgt. Evans T. Tucker home for the holidays. He has been in the Army 12 years and truely loves to serve his country. He is a Staff Sargent with Ft.Campbells 101st division currently serving his 5th combat mission.He has been in Afganistan for the past 8 months. He was scheduled to come home for R&R on Oct.31st, which he did but Nov.3rd he was sent on another mission. We were supposed to get married, which that got postponed. I know there is a chance he may have to go straight back to Afganistan, but just a few more days with him would be precious. My birthday is 4 days before Christmas, so this would actually grant more than one wish. Especially during the holidays missing him hurts, but knowing he is making a difference in the world is enough to put a smile on my face anyway!
