A Christmas Card Story

A photoshop image done right.

Ashley Sistrunk of Colorado is a Military wife and mother of four. Sgt. Brandon Sistrunk, Ashley’s husband, is currently serving our country overseas in Iraq – he’s been deployed there for five months.

While the Sistrunk family traditionally sends Christmas cards to their loved ones each year, Ashley knew it wouldn’t be the same without her husband in the picture so she decided to take matters into her own hands.

After seeing something similar on Pinterest, Ashley got her husband to hold up a sign from his base in Iraq while she and their four little one’s held up another sign on their end. The result?

Ashley told Inside Edition, “It’s exactly how I wanted it.” While the Sistrunk family prays for a safe return, Sgt. Brandon is expected to be home next month, Ashley hopes her photoshopped Christmas Card will inspire other military families this season, “I’ve always wanted to be able to reach out to other military spouses and let them know they aren’t alone in this.”
