When Honor Comes Unexpectedly ~ Meeting Taya Kyle

On two separate occassions this year I had the tremendous honor to meet Taya Kayle, the wife of the late Chris Kyle {American Sniper}. Although talking with her you would have thought she had the tremendous honor of meeting me. I still can’t quite put into words how I felt to be there, hear her speak, thank my husband and just take in the whole experience. I decided to write about it at Homefront United.

Recently, I had the honor of attending two events that were also attended by a recent 
icon in the military spouse community. Thrust into the spotlight by circumstance 
beyond her control, in a unique but unfortunately not unique position. 
Military spouses as a collective group are smart, compassionate, resilient, caring, 
understanding and some of the strongest women I know. The ‘Millies’ in my life, as
 I affectionately refer to them, are the backbone of my life, second only to my 
civilian church family. There is no one else in the world that I could go to and not have 
to explain my feelings or what I’m going through. There is however, a group of 
spouses that I couldn’t even classify myself as being on the same level with. They are 
the caregivers and widows of the military spouse community.
