It was 2 A.M., the air was getting crispier, temperatures falling below 30 degrees but no matter how late or cold, you could feel the wave of warmth wash over you - warmth from all the raw emotion felt by the loved ones of the soldiers coming back from a long deployment.
Time away is trying - long time away is indescribable. So it is finally time to say:
Welcome home SPC Royster! You were missed!
