  1. Just love to see how all the different reaction to the children when parents or loved ones have just gotten back home from serving our country. ๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ˜‡

  2. I am a retired USN sailor. I have not seen my sons in 18 years. It has been so long that they have been alienated from their biological father.

  3. My family was stationed at Fort Knox for a good 4 years. Then had to return to Fort Campbell. Home of the screaming eagles.

  4. Hi, kids. I' back for a while, then I'll go back overseas to continue
    killing innocent children like you, you know, just for the fun of it. Am
    I a great dad or what?

  5. THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME SERVICE AND SACRIFICES GIVEN TO DEFEND AMERICA AND IT'S CITIZENS!! WELCOME HOME, GOD BLESS YOU & YOUR FAMILY!! WE'VE ALL MISSED YOU!!

  6. I donโ€™t blame the military for prohibiting soldiers from talking to the media. The media takes their words and twists them into something theyโ€™re not. Itโ€™s deplorable.

  7. WE ABSOLUTELY WANT TO SAY THANK YOU FOR ALL OUR MEN AND WOMEN FOR

    THEIR SERVICES/WELCOME HOME, SMUG WOMEN, WHITE BABIES !! ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚
