Pride keeps Tanisha Owens going - pride in her Family and pride in her husband's service - despite the Army life that more often than not keeps her husband from home. While enduring Chief Warrant Officer Antonio Owens' fourteen-hour workdays on base, and his multiple tours of duty in Iraq, Tanisha has valiantly raised the couple's three children -- even suffering the loss of a stillborn infant. She also has instilled in her children a pride so fierce, the two-year-old smiles whenever anyone mentions that his dad is in Iraq. Tanisha says she's proud of her Family and proud to take care of things at home so her husband can take care of their country. "I love the Army," she says. "Hooah."
