The phrase "frenzied outbursts of emotion"doesn't even begin to explain what it's like for those of us on this side of deployment.  A whole year worth of birthdays, anniversaries, holidays, special events and everything in between that are missed.  It goes without saying that when the day comes when Dad comes home, "excitement" is an understatement!  I have to say, it's just as exciting for me.  Even when the soldier coming home isn't mine, but one from my husband's unit that didn't get to come home with everyone else because of medical issues.

Very true - whenever I am traveling and I see soldiers doing the same, I take a moment to stop and shake their hand and say "Thank you".

I don't make a big deal of it, just sort of nod, smile, and do it. It's never not been met with the warmest smile in return...
