Soldier who deployed hours after tying the knot, finally reunites with wife and family

Forty-eight hours after Sergeant Travis Rust and his wife, Lindsey, said “I do!” he was deployed to Kuwait.

“There were a lot of people at the wedding that didn’t know I was leaving so quickly. It made a happy event kind of sad for my family,” Travis told KSNB

Now, more than a year later, Sgt. Rust has returned from the Middle East and he ready to pick up where he left off with his wife and family. Leaving his family on such short notice was tough but he looks forward to spending quality time with them. For the newlywed couple, that means a long belated honeymoon that they didn’t have because Sgt. Rust had to leave so quickly.
