CPT Michael Schutte

Our Hero is my husband and daddy to my two daughters, CPT Michael Schutte, currently deployed in the Persian Gulf for Iraqi Freedom.

He is a Blackhawk helicopter pilot in the 12th Aviation Brigade, Giebelstadt, Germany. We have been in Germany since 1999. We have two daughters -- 23-month-old Madelyn, and 6-month-old Sophia. Mike's unit left for Kuwait on Feb.23. My daughters and I flew back here from Germany to be with family while Mike is deployed. Michael and I are both from Cincinnati. He graduated from Elder Highschool in 1991 and from Xavier University in 1995 where he completed ROTC, was commissioned and went on to U.S. Army Aviation School. My daughters and I miss him so much and we are so very proud of him and what he is doing. We pray so hard for him and all the soldiers to return home safely and quickly. Thanks so much to all those who have been praying and showing amazing support for the military and their families.

We love you. miss you and are so proud of you, Mike!!
