A single tear fell from her crystal blue eyes as she embraced her father, wishing him well on his deployment. She may have only been 7 years old, but she knew he was defending her way of life.
“I remember how hard it was to say goodbye to my dad when he deployed last year, but I also learned a valuable lesson while he was gone,” said Meddie Tuckey, daughter of Tech. Sgt. Gregory Tuckey, 338th Training Squadron instructor supervisor. “I was inspired to share it with others.”
