These homecomings get me EVERY time! This one was especially poignant.

God bless our troops.

This is awesome! What a great way to be greeted after fighting for your country! Why did they decide to hire “DJ Finesse” though? She’s just flappin her big yapper while these men reconnect with their families.

Not everyone believes these brave folks are fighting for their country. Some think they are fighting "on my behalf."

I watched again, and noticed the daughter in purple, who held the plate, and the poster, and waited.......last to be acknowledged, but none the less, she was absolutely fixated on her dad....*smiles*
