“The boys thought we were going to do a photo shoot to send photos to daddy so he knew what to look for when he got off the ship! Thank you so much to Black Bear Diner for making my husband’s homecoming so special! These memories will be cherished for years to come. To top it off Black Bear paid our bill and someone handed Brian $100 and refused to allow Brian not to accept it. Talk about absolutely emotional. So much love in one day and place! Welcome home to all USS Carl Vinson Sailors and their families!” –Emma Hoffard
