This job of documenting the highest highs in the lives of fellow military families never gets old. Military life for both the service member and the families is hard. It tests you, stretches you and constantly reminds you of just how much you can handle. On a personal note, this was the first deployment I’ve experienced with children, and it was just as difficult as the first time but in a different way. Military homecomings are the happiest reunions. The joy, the relief, the familiarity of having your person home. There is nothing like it.
