Staff Sgt. Salvatore Giunta recently became the first living recipient of the Medal of Honor in almost 40 years. It’s the highest honor that can be bestowed on a member of the Armed Forces and, like we’ve said before, a very big deal.
Several weeks ago we posted a story about his wife, Jennifer, who he calls “his rock,” and her comments on life as an Army spouse.
The Army this week released a new interview with Jennifer. In it I see a woman with an adoration of her husband and an attitude about military life that I want to emulate. You can see the emotion of that past rough deployment written all over her face — wow can I relate to that. Take a look.
Jennifer, your husband is an amazing hero who did an amazing thing — thanks for being down to earth enough to note that while mine hasn’t received a metal of honor and hasn’t done anything quite as jaw-dropping as what yours did that day, he is a hero too.
