The journey starts with a volunteer, someone who stands up to defend their country.
Training and boot camp challenge their endurance.
Deployment comes for the volunteers, now ready and able to defend a grateful nation…
and the family they leave behind at home.
Friendships are forged.
Some friends are lost…
but none are forgotten.
Homecomings are sweeter than home cooking.
Military families are made of more than shared blood, but of shared sacrifices.
Military families are built from many, but turn into an Army of one…
and the next generation stands to volunteer.
Many thanks to all of our Military Service Members, Veterans, and their Families!
