I think I've been to six homecomings now this go round....people keep asking me how I can keep going knowing that my husband still has a couple weeks before it's "our" homecoming. I love homecomings, I love supporting my friends and overall I love supporting our Soldiers. Yes, sometimes it's hard walking back to my truck without my Soldier but he is coming home and our time will come. I enjoy meeting the different families. I love watching the emotions from everyone. No one cries alone at homecomings as long as I'm there, lol.
Even though the routine is the same, I snap pictures and I love it. I love the anticipation of what is going to happen next. I have the whole process down pat and love watching the families get excited. I always say that I won't go back for another one until it is my time, yet I still go back. Why? Why not? Every Soldier deserves to be welcomed home properly. I have a lot of friends coming home and I love watching them reunite with their families. I just love it...take a look at the pics below...a small glimpse of homecoming and tell me...wouldn't you want to be a part of the emotion? It just doesn't get much better!!!
