Joshua was nominated by his wife, Michelle :
My husband Josh will be returning from his first deployment in a few weeks and I could not be more proud of him. This is our third tour since we have been together, I did two the 6 1/2 years I was in. It has been a rough and crazy road, out of almost five years of marriage, we have spent two together and did skype a total of maybe 10 minutes due to bad internet for the ones we missed. He recently got extended which is a bit crazy, but gives us more time to prepare for the transition out. My husband has gone above and beyond many times throughout his service and I feel this is just a small way to show my appreciation.
