When a father comes home from war

It's a wonderful, joyful thing when any military man or woman returns home to family and friends after a long separation imposed by war — a brother, sister, son, daughter — but there is something ineffably unique when dad comes home from war. The emotions written on the faces of these children say it all.

I extend my heartfelt gratitude to all our military personnel and their families, for the sacrifices they make on our behalf. Enjoy this montage of homecomings.


  1. I cried! Was great to see and was greatly needed! Thanks Patrick!!

  2. May God bless all the families of our brave men and women, especially after they return home and face a "normal" life again----

  3. I cried too!!!! Makes me look forward to being a dad.
