Deployment Homecoming

Published October 7, 2011 in Military, Personal

As a military spouse, sometimes I have to deal with rough realities of the military.  And in May, I did one of the harder things for me – which was seeing my husband off for his first deployment to the Middle East.  It was hard not having him around and constantly worrying.  But I was able to do some great things this summer, travel and photograph many cool cities.

On the flip side of that coin, deployment reunions are some of the most touching things I’ve seen!  I’ve been to the flight line many times in the last year, taking pictures for friends whose husbands are returning.  It’s the real-life “Coming Home“!  In September when Michael returned, I was THRILLED to be on that side of the deployment.  Below are lots of pictures of airmen reuniting with their wives and children after deployment.  These pictures were taken at Pope Army Airfield, and all of the military members below work with C-130 operations.  When the C-130 lands on American soil, they hoist the American Flag from the roof.  I tear up every time I see it.


Me and my favorite pilot! Thanks to my friend Jen who took these pictures for me 🙂
