What we are experiencing right now with social distancing is only a fraction of what military families go through with their loved ones. Although COVID-19 extended Jake’s deployment, he made sure his wife, Shannon, still felt special on her birthday. Jake, we thank you for continued service and hope you can be reunited with your family soon!  

“Yet another birthday that @jake.stockman is gone 🙁 I’ve lost count on how many this is now. He should be getting ready to come home right now but thanks to Covid-19 his deployment was extended. And unlike times in the past, this time there’s no end in sight which makes it so much worse! So Thank you my Love, for trying to make this birthday as special as you could. And thank you @1800flowers for still being open in this current crazy mess of a world.”
