“I surprised my little boy, Owen, when I came home from deployment. I made sure that he didn’t mind me posting this. I just think it is so heartwarming. I am in the Army National Guard and was deployed for about 9 months total.
My family is everything to me. It was very hard to be gone for so long, but my wife handled it all like a trooper. Coming home to my children was my driving force, and kept me sane while I was performing my mission.”
