Welcome Home {Fayetteville, NC OpLove Photographer}

July 26, 2010

This past weekend, I had the honor of attending a homecoming session. What a special day this was. Just like anything with the military, we were waiting around for a few hours, but the wait was worth it. I didn’t know anyone coming home, but I couldn’t help getting teary eyed when I saw them all march in and when the national anthem was playing. Welcome home N! Thank you for allowing me to be apart of your day!
