Homecoming!

We had another Homecoming tonight. Sgt. H. He's a married soldier and his sweet wife was so excited and anxious! Enjoy the pictures!

 

The Excited, but oh so anxious wife "D" waiting for her husband to arrive! (She's the one in the dress holding the flowers for her honey!) **Jacob in the row behind, getting tired!

 

 

Col. "G" welcoming home our Brave Soldier! (He only did a welcome speech of maybe 1 minute or less, but during that time the wife (who's hair is on the left) her whole body was starting to shake!!!)

 

Hugging for the first time!!

 

 

And the kiss! :*)

 

Sgt.H was the only soldier to come home tonight. He's a computer specialist (not quite sure the name of his job) but he's going to be getting all the computer's ready for the main body's return home! It was a very sweet homecoming, they had been married only a short time before he deployed! We were told to be at the building by 7:15....by 7:30 we were told that the driver had told the Sgt. that was here with us wrong and that when he was asked if he had gotten off the autobahn and he said yes, he meant to say that he'd gotten off of one autobahn and onto another one (the one that exits into our little city!), so we had about a 30 minute extra wait. His sweet wife was so excited and nervous when we thought he was due anytime (at 7:15) by the time he finally got there I think she was just a basket full of nerves! There was a nice turnout of supporters and for a group of less than 50 we were loud!!! Jackson even got in on the clapping tonight, which was a change from Sunday's home coming! We know we have at least one homecoming next week for one of our soldiers. Next week another Unit that left days before our guys left is coming home (which is exciting because we're such a small post, you  know about everyone and we know a lot of spouses who are so excited!!! The following week the other large unit who left 2 days before us is coming home, and then after that it'll be our guys!!!!!!) It's getting exciting!

Even the butterflies in my stomach were fluttering...great post and so wonderful of you to acknowledge all those others, husbands, wives the way you do.


But before I go, I just wanted to say how I absolutely LOVE the picture of them kissing....the thing that caught my eye the most was her standing on her tippy toes. You captured a great moment there!!!!

Awaiting the word on your hubby's return date!
