3 may at the airport there were a BUNCH of GIs

returning for a 15 day leave and I got to see an interesting sight.

One young soldier got to see his first child for the first time. I damned well came close to tears it was such a sight to behold.

The baby was born a couple of months ago when he was in Iraq, and the delightful look of wonderment and awe on his face was something to behold.

It sucks being overseas when something like that happens and some poor bastard gets cheated out of being there for the birth of his child, yet for a GI it is simply part of the gig.

What happens all too often is the GI gets killed and never gets to see his child.When something like that happens it is a tragedy.

It was a joyous sight to behold.
