Most people that know Kyle well would have a handful of words to describe him, “humble” being an anonymous choice. Sometimes I would even dare to say that he may be humble to a fault – refusing to take credit for something he deserves or has rightfully earned. For me, being aware of his overwhelming sense of humility means that I have to be proud enough for the both of us every now and then. Anyone that knows me well is probably smiling now because that isn’t a hard task for me by any means. I am always proud of Kyle and all that he does for us as a family. Yesterday, however, was a very special circumstance. Kyle was awarded the bronze star medal at his award ceremony for his actions in Afghanistan. My heart was bursting with pride when his name was called and I felt the pride overflowing as I watched him receive his award. He will probably refrain from sharing this accomplishment with people. Since there is a slight possibility that my pride wasn’t enough for the both of us, I wanted to make sure I shared it with all of you. Congratulations to my hero!
