I hope they were coming home! Thanks for sharing this, Joe.

Our military deserves to be honored. The families that are left behind deserve it even more. God calls us to care for the widows and orphans. I believe, in today's world, that includes our military families who are separated by deployments. These families are being asked to endure incredible hardships and heartache. We need to do all we can to support them with our earnest prayers, empathy. shared meals, child care and HUGS!


Thanks Joe, i'm bawling like a baby! Whenever I see things like this I always think of my Dad. It was so hard for him to not be bitter about the support the troops get. He remembers the harsh way he was treated when he returned from Vietnam,"no one ever did that for us" he would say. Now he can say "good this is the way it should be" I'm glad we have learned (as a country) at least one lesson from Vietnam....
