That's quite a moving story. What most civilians don't realize is that the same scenario occurs in one form or another in EVERY military family with a deploying parent.That's thousands, maybe hundreds of thousands, of goodbyes a year! It may not be caught on film so poignantly each time, but each child (and spouse) who has to say 'goodbye' to daddy or mommy experiences that wrenching pain.
