Army Wife Ashley Eberle with her husband SGT Ben Eberle

The above image was posted on fb earlier this evening.  It is of a soldier from my husband's unit.  I've been following this story from the start and you can to here.   I can't tell you how many times this sweet, young and inspiring couple encourages me.  The girls and I pray for them and I hope that you will take a moment to pray for them too.  Valentine's Day is fast approaching.  Perhaps as you plan your special day you'll be reminded of them.  They are looking forward to that day, too.  It's pretty obvious how much they love each other, but what you can't tell from the image above is that their first baby, a daughter, is due on the 14th of February.  Seems all too fitting for them in my mind!  

Thank you SGT and Mrs. Eberle for your service and for your sacrifice to our Country ... and thank you for the encouragement you bring to so many.

"Dear friends, as this page continues to fill with love and hope for Ben and his family we feel must tell the extent of his injuries. Ben was injured by an IED and has suffered severe injuries, among them are above knee amputations to both of his legs and the loss of his right hand. As we stated before, he is strong despite all of this. The skull and spinal fracture will heal on their own, as they are hairline. Ben also has a sinus fracture and a pelvic fracture. He was in the operating room this morning and his wounds are clean and healing correctly. He also has a perforated lung, but thankfully the tube was taken out today. It will take a few days for his to get his voice back. Now that the tube has been removed, he should be able to talk and curse at us when we see him in San Antonio on Friday!
He is a fighter, and has stayed strong throughout this so we have no doubt he will come out on top. Please continue to pray for him and the family, especially Ashley and baby Halle. xoxo"
