One of the 5 crew members of the crashed Nigerian Air Force (NAF) Mi-35M helicopter at Damasak in Borno State, Lance Corporal Adamu Nura hours before the sad incident took to Facebook to celebrate his wife and other women married to military men.
Adamu Nura described marriage to a soldier as the greatest sacrifice of life. In the post, he accorded all wives of soldiers as his man of the year for staying at home alone and lonely while their husbands suffer in the dangerous field of war zones.
His Facebook post reads:
“MY WIFE! MY LOVE!! MY QUEEN!!!
I salute you.
My man of the year goes to all the WIVES of our soldiers who stay home alone and lonely while their husbands suffer in the dangerous field of war zones.
Marriage to a soldier is the greatest sacrifice of life. Any woman who marries a soldier can do anything for love. She knows the uncertainty of her marriage but because of her patriotic and true love, she reached a vow to a soldier.
Any woman married to a soldier should be celebrated and appreciated. Her husband is not hers alone but for the nation. A soldier can spend a whole year without seeing his wife or family and the diligent woman would remain faithful to the union.
In a sane clime, special considerations would have been given to wives of soldiers but here we look away as if their condition matters not. Where ever you are today, stand erect and show respect to the wives of our gallant men.
God shall bring your sacrificial men back home safe and healthy. We appreciate your support at the home front. For those whose husbands are no more, God shall send your helpers.
God bless the WIVES of our soldiers.
