The life of a military spouse is one of dedication and patience. You never know what’s around the corner, and must be ready for the unexpected.
Easier said than done.
Heather Means puts the most unexpected and trying events of her life into words in “My Special Force: The warrior who taught me the meaning of life and love.”
Heather falls head-over-heels in love with a man who decides to join the Special Forces after losing one of his dearest friends on September 11. They meet during his military training and never look back.
As she joins the loneliness of military spouse-dom, Heather has her first child while Ryan is deployed. Their long-distance family is growing. The emails and letters provided in the book help the reader understand how in-love the couple truly is; the distance is real, but so is the commitment.
Her story takes a gut-wrenching twist when Ryan is diagnosed with cancer and his prognosis is anything but good. Heather is preparing to give birth to their second child, and must also make plans to raise her children as a single mom.
She married her brave soul mate, but was forced to find her courage through him in order to look ahead.
Heather holds on to the memory and legacy of her husband with this inspiring story, reminding all military families not to take advantage of their family’s love.
