OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) — Today is Military Spouse Appreciation Day. 3 News Now reporter Danielle Davis spoke with a Navy lieutenant commander from Bellevue who wanted to give a special thank you to her husband here in the Metro.

Krystle Kageyama is stationed in Djibouti Africa. She's doing important work but is all about honoring the sacrifices and contributions her husband makes every day.

Married for six years, Krystle says she can't say it enough, how grateful she is for her husband.

"I want to thank him for the support he has shown to me, taking care of the kids, he is just amazing. I am so blessed to have him as a husband and to be there for me,” she said.

Krystle is on the emergency management team that ensures security in Europe, Africa and Southwest Asia. They've been practicing social distancing there as well. Krystle and her husband have six children, so her husband has his hands full.

"I need for him to get enough rest because my kids are very active, they love running around, jumping all over on him,” she said.

Krystle been gone for six months and says this is the longest time she has been away from her family so it has been the hardest. Knowing her kids are taken care of makes her job feels easier she said.

"Spouses at home have the hardest job,” she said. “It's harder being at home and taking care of everything at the house and then with the children too, I really appreciate my husband and all the spouses out there that are supporting us here in the military."

She is expected to be home sometime in the fall and just looks forward to replacing all of the virtual hugs for real ones.

3 News Now wants to thank all of those in the military as well as the spouses holding things down here at home. We love you, we appreciate you and while it can never be said enough, we thank you for your service.
