My Hero is SFC Gary Lykins. He is with the 391st MP Co based at Ft Hayes in Columbus. Gary graduated from Princeton High School, class of 1987. I did also.We live in Mason. He has been in the Army for 16 1/2 years. 4 of them Active Duty, based in Louisiana. He was activated exactly 2 years ago to the day for Kosovo. He has been home for 16 months. He left March 22. I dont know where he is to be stationed. Gary's unit is a POW Detention Unit.
Gary & I have 3 children 13, 12 & 6. It is very hard for him to leave them but he takes pride in what he is doing and believes in his job. That makes us very proud of him and every other soldier fighting for us. We have been married for 15 years. He is my best friend, my soul mate and MY HERO.
I want to thank every soldier and their families for the sacrifices we all are making. Bless them all.
