It is the hardest thing for a parent to not be there for the birth of their child. But it must be a million times harder for a parent serving their country and knowing there is nothing that they can do in order to be with their loved ones during the most important time of their life. Military life is not easy. But there is no sweeter moment than coming home from a combat deployment. And there is definitely nothing like reuniting with your beautiful wife but most importantly meeting your baby daughter!Read More
Every homecoming is different, and yet every homecoming is the same.
A homecoming is like a bare nerve- it is sensitive, it is painful, it is pulsating, and it feel like its about to tear.
And then comes that sweet moment - a white bus off in the distance - and noise falls ... time stands still, and the atmosphere changes.
Everything changes in that precious moment - because the wait is finally over.
SPC Hall - welcome home! Gaby and Payton missed you so much!
It was the longest wait - and the most emotional return. From constant rescheduling to an emotional rollercoaster, to finally a good day - the GREATEST day!
This Friday was the day Taylor and her babies got to welcome their soldier home.
The air was filled with anticipation, and nervousness, and so much love - and as soon as a glimpse of the white bus was seen, tears started to fill up the eyes. Tears of joy and tears of relief. Tears of happiness.
Welcome home SGT Elliott!
Brittini was one of the very first people I met here in Vilseck, when we moved into our house. Little did I know that only after a few short months of knowing each other her husband would deploy for a long time, leaving Brittni missing him to the moon and back.
It was almost fate that led me to the same gymnasium 9 months later where Joseph, Brittni's husband, was coming back to. When I saw Brittni there, nervous and excited all at the same time, all I wanted was to capture those precious moments of their reunion.
Welcome back SPC. Martin!
My dear friend finally got her husband back from what seemed like an eternity wrapped into a deployment. The day couldn't have passed by any slower while she waited, but as she finally saw the busses roll in, it seemed like one hour flew by like a mere second.
