The Morning After
Circumstances aren't always such that you can get a photo of the special moment. After a 9-month deployment in Iraq, Sarah's husband was stuck in Germany for 24 hours and then delayed in Baltimore.

Sarah explained, "All flights out were cancelled for three days. I just wanted my husband back. The Army ended up sending people to drive to Maryland from Fort Drum, New York, to pick up our soldiers. After driving through blizzards, I met him in the Verizon parking lot at 3 a.m. in snowy and 15 degree weather."

The next morning, the couple surprised their son, who just couldn't wait to show Daddy his trains!
