Absolutely Gorgeous Sun Rise & Special “Thank You” To All Military Spouses

Ralph via SAT phone (transcribed)
Wow, the most amazing thing that I have ever seen. We have been inching along with visibility of only fifty to a couple of hundred feet. We noticed the sun on the horizon coming up. You could barely see it through the fog. Then in like a twinkle of the eye, the sun came up. It just hit a certain point and boom, it came up. You got visibility now for a couple of miles. It was just a minute, maybe two minutes. Now there are beautiful rocky islands. There is a bird off to the starboard, the right side, 10 degrees, maybe 15 degrees ahead. The bird is out fishing. Absolutely Gorgeous! I have never seen a fog lift like that in my life. I guess that is the way it is up here in the Northern part of Canada. This is so awesome!
Getting back what I was talking about earlier, the importance of thinking about what the spouse goes through when their husband, or in some cases the wife, go off to serve. Especially when it is in a combat zone, or somewhere there are terrorists or somewhere they are planting bombs or are shooting at you. They don’t even know what is going on. They got financial problems, they got other problems. Many wives depend on their husbands for so many things. What if something breaks, who is going to fix it? What if things go wrong? She often depends on her husband to fix so many things. What if she needs help? Hey, we need to think about that one.
Thank you.
Talk to you later.
