A Soldier's Precious Moment Holding His Son

By
Real Estate Agent with Prudential PenFed Realty

Our son-in-law Matt arrived safely home from Iraq last night and we picked him up at BWI airport in Baltimore.  Matt missed the entire first year of his son's life while executing dangerous missions in Iraq on a daily basis.  Some of you may recall that Matt was sent to Iraq just one week after his first child was born.

His son, Riley, bonded with him immediately.  Take a look at this photo:

 A Soldier's Precious Moments

Thanks to all of you for your thoughts and prayers, Matt is home safe and reunited with his family!

Let us never forget the sacrifices our soldiers are making for us so that we may enjoy the freedoms that we have here in the US.  Oh yes, and thank you Matt, from the depths of our heart and souls.  We all owe you and your fellow soldiers BIG TIME!

God bless you!

Marchel, I am in VA Beach with my daughter and the entire family.  What a blessing, an answer to our prayers!  Thank your son for me for his service to our country as well.

This is a gorgeous photo and hearing you tell the back story makes it even more special.  So glad he is home un-harmed.
