Some of you might recall that my son.. has not been the easiest to raise. Since our divorce - my son has struggled. He has needed a male role model in his life, and my ex....has not been a good father to him (ever). He has decided to go into the military... and the talk of troops takes on a WHOLE new meaning for me now.
THIS? I am going to be a wreck. But I am ALREADY SO proud of the man that he is about to become.
Yes, God Bless them all!!
Still crying. I remember the days, even though it was 19 years ago. Nothing you see on those videos could ever truly express how you feel when you see that soldier run to you-and you to him/her.
I pray for the troops every day. God bless them.
Thanks, IrishDave for sharing it.
Major-you softie, you!
I am proud of him, and I don't even know you!!!!!
Thank you for sharing this. It means so much to those of us who have family and friends in the military.
OH my goodness! I'm bawling like a baby and I'm not even done watching it! This is so amazing!
Lovely. I had to go and watch some other ones, too. Now I'm an emotional wreck.
I thought about doing that too but at 11pm at night, I'm playing it smart.

This will be my husband on Friday when he comes home for R&R. He will meet the new baby at the airport and then we will head off to school! I couldn't even open the link because the tears are already flowing!

I'm a wimp! Cried like a baby. Thanks for sharing. And good luck and best wishes to the previous poster whose husband is coming home. Thank you for your service (and your husband's)! You look in the eyes of those kids and realize how hard it must be....
Just reading this post had my tearducts flowing. My husband served. I was quite lucky that he didn't have to miss any milestones. How hard it must have been to deliver your child without your husband by your side---bless you. Ironically my husband was gone for the max of 6 weeks at training. (He did serve in several places long term and in Desert Storm before he met me). Then when he got out and became a civilian (Dept. of Defense), THAT'S when he was gone more. I find that ironic. He did sign up to serve 6 months in Afghanistan. It was good money but seriously the hardest thing our family has ever done. Too many things happened during that time and we were across the country for our family so too little support. My husband came home for 1 day and then sent back out for debriefing. I went to meet him at the airport (alone). When he came back home a few days later, that's when the kids went to meet him (they didn't know about the other day). I was glad because I was singularly unprepared for the emotions I would feel the moment I saw him. We are so lucky to be living in modern times because we can contact them frequently but it's just not the same. I love military life. It's just that those hard moments really are tough and those homecomings really are an emotional rollercoaster ride.
Thanks for sharing. I cried as well!!! Those kids faces just say everything!!!
