A really good friend of mine came to me, asking me to be there when her husband came home from a year long tour in Afghanistan. I jumped at the chance; homecomings are always full of happiness! Michelle didn't tell her kids until an hour and a half before heading out the door that Daddy was coming home, and boy, were they full of excitement! The weather was beautiful: not too hot, light breeze and sunny! We weren't there long when the seven tons arrived with their gear. I could see that is when it became real to all of them, Mikey couldn't tear his eyes away from the Marines and Sailors unloading the bags. Not much later, we heard the buses coming up! It wasn't long before Dave was in their arms again, the Kucirka family now together again.
