Our brave troops are able to do what they do because of the love and support they receive at home. When we at Low VA Rates say we support the troops, it means we also support those they leave behind: their husbands, wives, friends, mothers, fathers, children, and siblings. The military wife community in particular is strong and populated with some of the nation’s most exemplary patriots. Here’s a list of some of our favorite military wife quotes having to do with these brave wives and the struggles they face:

And last, but not least:
“I wear no uniforms, no blues or greens.
But, I am in the military, in the ranks rarely seen.
I have no rank upon my shoulders. Salutes I do not give.
But in the military world is where I live.
I am not in the chain of command, orders I do not give or get.
But my husband is the one who does, this I can not forget.
I am not the one who fires a weapon, Who puts his life on the line.
But my job is just as tough, I’m the one who is always left behind.
My husband is a patriot, a brave and pride filled man.
And the call to serve his country not all can understand.
Behind the lines, I see things needed to keep this country free.
My husband makes the sacrifice, but so do my kids and me.
I love the man I married. The military is his life.
So I pledge to support my hero and stand among the silent ranks known as the military wife.”
-Unknown author, “The Silent Ranks: Tribute to the Military Wife”
