“Here is a piece that I edited about University of Illinois center, Meyers Leonard. It was produced/directed/shot by Matt Engel. Having a close relationship his entire life with big brother Bailey, Meyers was shocked when his brother, who was currently on duty as a U.S. Marine, flew to Illinois to surpise him and watch him play for the first time in years.”
“Our son shipped to Army basic training one week before my husband was the deployed to Afghanistan in January 2012. Therefore, my husband missed our son’s basic training graduation, AIT graduation and Airborne School graduation. Originally scheduled to return home in November, my husband returned home early (in September). Our son had no clue, and my husband surprised him at Fort Bragg, NC during field training exercises!” -Gina
“My husband was gone for 13 months. He was stationed in Iraq. The girls and I coped by Skyping with him almost everyday, which made it a whole lot easier on all of us. Of course time couldn’t pass fast enough for us to actually see him in person. We missed him so much. We were all very proud of him, and to all the other soldiers that were and still are over there… Thank you!”
