Another Young Widow

Posted By Victoria Smith

i am an army widow. I myself lost my soldier last march 2011. My husband deployed twice out of fort Bragg, NC. He survived both deployments to come back to violence at home. My he was shot and killed doing what he loved protecting people. I was only 26 at the time and couldnt think straight. I was with my husband the night he was murdered which mad things all the more difficult for me.. All I could do was think about our three children.. At the time our girls where 6, 6 and 8. I have been trying to stay strong for my girls.. We are alone here. My family is in Virginia and his is here in north Carolina but I haven’t heard from them since the funeral. People always ask, why do I stay and I tell them I can’t leave him. This is why I will stay.. To this day I visit him every single day.. I can’t imagine not doing this.. I’m glad I found this site I wish I had someone close like you all have to survive this with.
