Joyous Reunion

And he's home.!

Photo ops were numerous, to say the least. So many excited children and tearful husbands and wives. And my sister and her husband, and the rest of the family, were among those shedding tears of joy.

Justin looks great, and was SO excited to get himself settled in an apartment off base and begin life States-side. It sounds as if there's a decent system in place for helping our soldiers re-enter a more "normal" life. And Justin has people to talk to. This will help.

At least three days this week there were flights arriving from overseas 2-3 times a day. And at least three days this week, more groups were departing.

God bless those home, and those now so far away.

And I thank him and the others ... so grateful for his safe return.

Welcome home to your beloved one. And thank him for his service period. It will never be forgotten what he did, just like we still remember the good things the soldiers did in WOII.
He'll be fine once settled in the States again.
Thank you for sharing this story Sandy.
Soft hugs Dagmar
