how do they do it?

military homecoming after 12 months in afghanistan.
no idea how families deal with it, it must be incredibly hard.
i tried to put myself in the shoes of the woman who was crying so hard when she saw her husband. i couldn't even bear it. it brings tears to my eyes now. the girl below would not stop sobbing as she was holding her dad. and this is even supposed to be the good part, the happy end if you will. what about those who aren't coming back and their families....

Great photo, but our paper credits Sarah not you.

Ha I know! She edited photos on my computer the day before and I forgot to change the credits. Did you think I stole it? :)

Super super images. The first one is heartbreaking.
