When Marcus Luttrell signed a copy of LONE SURVIVOR for me, he wrote something very profound which I would like to reiterate: “The only job harder than being a Navy SEAL is being the wife one. You are the hero.” (He assumed as many do that my Navy retired husband was a SEAL). But he was still right. The only human beings more heroic than our SEALs are their wives, some of whom become their widows. This blog is dedicated to the widows of Navy SEALs. Here are the ones I’m acquainted with. Please feel free to list more names in the comments below. To these strong, incredible women: America thanks you for your terrible sacrifice, and we are sorry that the price was so high. We share in your profound loss. God bless you and comfort you.
Maria (Patsy) Dietz-Shipley, Laura McGreevy, Kimberly Vaughn, Taya Kyle, Kelley Brown, Normandina Healy… Please keep the list going by adding names to the Comment tab below.
