  1. It does make me teary seeing those soldiers leave their families. I know they have to go --and I'm glad we have them protecting us. BUT--it's still hard to see deployment. It's much nicer seeing them RETURN home...

    Great set of photos.
    Hugs,

  2. I'm glad you got these moving pictures -- and that you warned us to get the tissues handy. These are wonderful pictures of heroes and their family.

  4. What a wonderful tribute and post. Definitely made me cry. As wonderful as our new home for 18 months is, (New Zealand), our hearts often turn to our permanent home and we give gratitude for the freedoms and blessings we have there, and for those like these men (and women) who make it possible. P.S. I wish I had more time to comment, I love your posts.)
