So many military service members and their families visit the "Morning Express with Robin Meade" Salute to Troops blog each day, so we wanted to take a moment to pass on some important information from the NAVY about the "Shore Wide Area Alert Network" or WAAN. The WAAN can alert Sailors and civilians to many kinds of emergency situations and pass on vital information impacting anyone assigned to Navy installations.
If this is a tool that you think you or your family can use, visit the Commander, Navy Region Mid-Atlantic (COMNAVREG) website: http://www.cnic.navy.mil/cnrma or the COMNAVREG facebook page for more information. Feel free to pass this on to anyone you think could use these kind of alerts.
HLN would also like to extend an invitation to those of you visiting our blog for the first time to consider saluting a military member on Morning Express with Robin Meade! To submit a salute of your own visit the special Salute To Troops assignment page at: iReport.com! Or create your own salute and send it off immediately at sendasalute.cnn.com.

This is a salute from Corinne Linkous to her husband Chief Warrant Officer Ken Linkous, U.S. Army.
I'd like to salute my husband, CW4 Ken Linkous. Ken has served in the U.S. Army for nearly 25 years and is a pilot currently serving in Afghanistan. This makes his third deployment. I feel so fortunate to know Ken and even more fortunate to be his wife. It's hard to express how special and wonderful Ken is to me and those around him.
Ken, I'm so proud of you. Thank you for all of the sacrifices you make. They do not go unnoticed. My love, support, and prayers are with you every day, honey. I beam just talking about you, and I miss you like crazy.
Be careful and be safe. I love you, honey – so very, very much!
