    Grab two Kleenexes. And thanks to those who keep us safe. I hope all the homecomings are as special as this one.

    I only made it 3 minutes into the 8 minute video before I was a blubbering mess. LOL.

    RE: this video.... that little boy was so cute. I love to see kids when their parents come home from a deployment. It always makes me smile.

    Saw it earlier today. The little boy just tugged at my heartstrings. The tears were flowing - even my 42-year-old he-man was wiping his eyes.

    beautiful know just how they feel. DH called one night and said he was still in Hawaii and i knew it would just be 2 weeks more. however what i didn't know mr sneaky was at the airport in hawaii so in the morning there was a really loud banging at the door by the time i got there there was banging at the back door. i was thinking what was wrong and it might of been my mom who lived a few blocks away. finally got to the front door again and opened it to find DH there. what a great surprise that was. homecomings were always the best.

    Love that program! My SIL is a career Marine with a number of deployments over the years. Each reunion, whether large or small, is such an emotional time. Grateful for his service, but more grateful for the time he is able to spend at home with family.

    I love those happy reunions. It reminds me of a prank I pulled on my family. I went off to boot camp and then hospital corp school. I was there so long after I graduated waiting on my assignment papers to come in for my nest school. When I finally got them, I was packed up and out of Great Lakes, Il. heading home via plane to Pittsburg, Pa. I just made it to the greyhound bus terminal with 15 minutes to spare, before catching the greyhound to Cumberland, MD and still not calling home, I got a taxi the last 20 miles. I dropped my seabag in the front yard and knocked on the front door. Needless to say the commotion from within was enormous when I ID'd myself. I was home for one week before heading to San Francisco.
