For all of us that have been through a military deployment, we know that there truly are no words to express how we feel at the time of departure or homecoming. With emotions running high and having many other things on our minds, many of us forget to capture these moments on film or with pictures. A wonderful opportunity for military families to capture these moments is here. Operation Love Reunited, works with local photographers in your area, to capture the moments that mean the most to you. This service however is only for deploying, deployed and returning military families.
Mary G., an Air force wife recently welcomed her husband home after an 8 month deployment. She knew that she would be too concerned with other things and was so amazed at the pictures taken at homecoming. “During the homecoming, I was more concerned with greeting my airman than worrying about taking pictures. Our photographer captured such beautiful shots that I knew I would have never been able to capture. I am able to display these photos with such pride and you can truly see the love pouring out of the pictures. I think it is wonderful that these photographers volunteer their services for military families, it truly is such a wonderful memory to have.”
This service is at no cost to the military family and you will receive a pre-deployment session before your spouse leaves and also a returning session. The photographer will accompany you to welcome home your spouse and they will take care of capturing all the emotion and love that there is at homecoming. As a military family you are eligible to receive the 2 sessions per year, and again at no cost to you. You may either visit the site to find a photographer, or you may contact your photographer and check with them if they participate in this program.

Are the child care costs too much for your budget? When a parent deploys or is activated, there is most likely a need for childcare and there is also an increase in their out-of-pocket expenses that may leave many in a financial burden.

Vets, Troops Fret Over Shutdown by Lynn Goya on September 27th, 2013
If it weren’t disastrous for so many people, the near-routine threat to shut down the government would have become blasé by now.
