This mans return was magical. Why are not more fathers shown this kind of love?
They are Steven, all the time!
It's just that one isn't likely to see it
on daytime TV anytime soon!
If it gets too depressing, hang out near the arrival and/or departure gate at almost ANY US airport!
Wear long sleeves,.... trust me on this one!
Thanks bro. I get sappy sometimes, esprecially when it's late.
I've got a lot to be thankful for. I found a WONDERUL gal in Indonesia. She doesn't want my money, and does not care which country we live in.
I have a great job. People open doors for me, and I call each person I meet Sir or Ma'am, and they know I am respectful.
Just 2 days ago, we had a guy come home from Mid-Tour Leave, and ALL of use in this town came to see him when he got off the airplane. His wife was crying, we gave him a standing ovation, his friends came to greet him.
He looked like I did when I came home "yea yea, I've been on airplanes for 22 hours - just let me go home" ... but I know later he'll tell people how his unit and friends were there for him. I know I did.
Ya know, when I got off the airplane in Anchorage, the new GOVERNOR (Sarah Palin) was there to greet us. She didn't have to be, but she was. At the time I was like, "great, nice to meet you, whatever", but now, as I reflect on it, she made it her priority to meet us at the airport. She is a private person as to her family time - but she took time away from her family to make sure she was there. Not a media circus, she didn't make a speech, she just greeted us, hugged us, thanked us, and welcomed us.
God speed to this good sailor and his family.
