Dove Men+Care Supports Operation Homefront
Dove Men+Care isn’t content to simply send donations to the troops. Dove Men+ Care has partnered with Operation Homefront to bring home 300 servicemembers (both moms and dads) this Father’s Day to spend quality time face-to-face, hand-in-hand.
We adore a surprise homecoming – even when they induce the ugly cry – so we are thrilled to share this amazing video showing one reunion sponsored by Dove Men + Care.
Our Deployment & Homecoming Stories In Pictures
As you know, I’m a proud military spouse and many of the contributing writers are as well. We’ve all survived deployments, separations of both the long and short variety. We’ve spent holidays, birthdays, Mother’s Days and Father’s Days separated. We’re no exception; this is the life of a military spouse. But, we are honored to share a little bit of these stories in photos.
My husband deployed in October 2010. Family and friends gathered at the airport to send him off.
We don’t have many good photos of his actual homecoming, ten months after leaving, because it involved delays and an eventual middle of the night while the kids were sleeping return. They received the best morning wake-up EVER when they discovered daddy was home. But, they were wide awake and thrilled when he came home for a week in the middle of his deployment. I adore these homecoming photos!
Catherine shared these touching photos taken when her husband returned from a six month deployment and was reunited with her and their daughter. LOVE! (And notice how tightly he’s hugging her? Swoon.)
We can’t help but smile when we see the fabulous photos from one of Maureen’s reunions Her husband was deployed to Afghanistan for six months and came home to his pretty ladies! Don’t you just adore the expressions on their daughter? Pure joy, even with a little happy cry mixed in.
And we love a good reunion photo! Here’s Shannon’s family when her husband returned from a long deployment.
Perfect Gifts for Dad on Father’s Day
Over the past week we’ve shared our Father’s Day Gift Guide with a range of gift ideas at every price point. You’ll find gadgets, green gifts, handmade gifts and more. But, sometimes you need to keep it simple and practical and that’s where Dove Men+Care comes in.
