Joshua told us about the photo…

This photo was taken during our pre-deployment session. When Josh and I married in 2005 while he was a U.S Airmen we did this exact photo. Josh and I have endured a lot this past year leading to deployment and this picture has meant a lot to us and got us through trying times. It reminds me that our love is as strong and tolerable as an oak tree, can endure anything and will recover and grow stronger than ever.

Here’s what Joshua had to say about Denae…

My Husband is Joshua Ramsey. He is my strength and my Best friend. We have known each other since we were 19 and 20, and we are now almost 30 and 31. He has been by my side through everything, as I have with him. Yes we are still young however we have been through a lot. My Husband has never once complained nor said something wasn’t possible. He always makes the best of things and makes things happen. He is Funny, Loving, Respectful, and one of the Strongest Men I know.

Steven told us about the photo…

This photo was taken for Christmas pictures while we were stationed in Alaska. It’s one of the only pics of just my wife and I that are done professionally. I use to hate taking pictures but now know that there’s a reason behind it. I can’t complain the next time she drags me along!

Here’s what Steven had to say about Maria…

My wife is amazing. She does so much for our family and so much for me. We have two girls and she’s being mom and dad right now and she couldn’t be doing a better job. No know at times she gets frustrated and tired but she’s a fighter and she’ll keep fighting right through this deployment. My wife is the balance to our family the one that keeps us all on track and doing what we need to be doing. Improbably don’t thank her enough but this deployment has shown me how much i really appreciate everything just does for the girls and I.
