I am the wife of a hero! First let me say how wonderful and touching these stories are that you post. I’m sure there are tons of them! My husband – Lance Corporal Duane Wood knew he was going to be drafted in 1969 so he enlisted because he wanted to be a Marine. His older brother’s wife was expecting their first child so my husband volunteered to go to Vietnam so his brother could come home. I know they don’t give medals for things like this but in our eyes he is a hero!
