As he walked with his fellow soldiers, he was prepared to leave for his next assignment. The time he spent at home was too short, and his deployment would be long, but he was used to that. Sometimes he wondered if his family felt his absence more than he did. He turned to say goodbye, hoping his family knew that he loved them, but what he saw took away his breath.

Military farewells are usually emotional, and so are the reunions. Josiah James went to Family Day at the ballpark with his mother and sister. Josiah was chosen to throw the opening pitch, but what he didn't know was that the man behind the catcher's mask was none other than his father, Staff Sgt. Jesse James. His father had just gotten home from spending a year in Korea, and when Jesse took of the mask Josiah could be heard screaming "Daddy!"

The soldiers in the Pennsylvania Army National Guard were finally home from Kuwait. The families were anxiously waiting as the buses drove in. Three-year-old Lily Gudaitis was wearing a red, white, and, blue tutu, with a shirt that read “Your princess missed you." Once she saw her dad, Sgt. Charles Gudaitis, she ran towards him to jump right into his arms.

These boys had no idea what waited for them when they went to school one day.

Damon Ricky, who's in the second grade, was waiting with his brother Noah in the hallway, preparing for a parade. All of the kids had USA-themed signs meant to welcome home a soldier. Damon and Noah had no idea that the soldier was their dad, Specialist Mars Ricky, who had been overseas for a year. As soon as Ricky walked down the hallway, Damon yelled "Daddy" and ran to him for a hug.

Unfortunately, some hugs are meant for goodbyes.

Task And Purpose

Approximately 170 soldiers in the California Army National Guard were preparing to leave for a yearlong deployment in Afghanistan. The children of Sgt. James Fontenot, Scarlett and James, went with him to the Oroville National Guard office to say farewell. The kids told him how much they'd miss him as they hugged goodbye.

Sometimes seeing heartwarming reunions are better than the game you came to watch.
