Welcoming My Brother Home

Happy, happy day.

The last of the 48th arriving.
The 48th started coming home in March.
This is the last bunch.

No words need to said here.

The look on my brother's oldest son
tells that it is not only the soldiers themselves
that sacrifice.

A family whole again.
Welcome home brother.

It was 5pm and we were finding our way to the welcoming field
on Fort Stewart, we were running late,
when all traffic was stopped...
then a bugle was heard playing,
men and women getting out of their cars standing,
a flag lowering...
It was a beautiful, amazing sight.
I know this happens every day on every military
base of the U.S.A,
but, to witness it this day,
at that moment,
left me in awe.
