Aaron is a soldier currently in the process of medically retiring from the army. He has been deployed twice- he spent 12 months in South Korea, and he also spent 15 months in Iraq, where he cheated death a few times and received a Purple Heart. Aaron's nickname is "lucky" and for a good reason- he's lucky to be alive! He was shot in the head by a sniper in 2008, but survived. He is an amazing husband and father, even when he's thousands of miles away. We've known each other since we were just 14 and we were high school sweethearts. I couldn't have picked a better man and I am so proud to call him my husband.
