A quick Veterans Day post to deliver our props to America’s military fathers, who can be away from their families for more than a year at a time while deployed overseas. I thought I’d put some videos together from around the net, but mostly from a special blog called Welcome Home Blog, where they aggregate videos of military homecomings and surprise visits.
I think it’s easy to be grateful to the troops, who sometimes have to put in on the line while defending American interests, but I think some special recognition needs to be given to the children and families of these veterans. You see, while a soldier takes an oath and willingly goes into harm’s way, their families (spouses, children, parents) don’t take any oath, and they must make sacrifices too.
So let’s celebrate the military family today, at the same time as we celebrate the military family men. Roll the clips!
