Hello everyone,

I’m trying to nominate my husband.. and while, yes, that sounds selfish I suppose. The entry itself is for our entire family.

You see, my husband just got back not to long ago, maybe almost a year ago, from Afghanistan, fighting for us for an entire year. When he got home from BCT they scooped him up right away, we barely got two weeks with him before he was gone over seas. After one year of fighting for our freedom he comes home to no one wanting to let him have a job.. so we had to live with my parents so we could take care of the children and still look for work, of which I’ve still found none, and we just barely scrape by.
In his time over there he’s seen awful things that still give me nightmares just thinking about it, as well as messed up his knees, back and is now mentally scarred and no longer the sweet, loving man I knew. But a depressed soldier who thinks hes not worth it, saying several times he wished he’d have died over seas so that we (meaning myself and our children) would be set on the money we’d get in case of his demise. And now I’d love to give him /something/ to be happy about, as he seems to have lost all care for really anything.
We now have two children that love their father, but when he gets home from work as an electrician’s apprentice (which he only got on because his dad helped him), hes so dead tired he can’t play or even sit with us without falling asleep, and that’s just so he can keep a horrible little home, of which we were ripped out of so much money for. $20,000, for a tiny /tiny/ two bedroom one bath house that has no fence for our kids to play in and the rooms are barely large enough to let us put both kids in one room and ourselves in the smaller room.

I beg you to help us.. I know its not much of a story, but I know if there was a way to give my husband something he can be proud of.. I may get him back instead of the shell of a man I now have and still love with all of my heart.

Thank you for reading, its very appreciated,
Karol Lynn Corbin
