    My wife and I saw this. We were both very teary eyed. Not even afraid to admit it.

    One of the hardest things I would think is to be away from kids and family for that long. I would miss my wife for sure, but not being able to see my kids grow and experience new things would kill me.

    I spent 4 years in the army before attending ISU.

    Could have never joined if I had kids like now. Cannot be away from them.

    So does she get the truck she asked for or not? They never said.
