For the “Welcome Homes” that Never Happened

For the “Welcome Homes” that Never Happened May 28, 2012

Many of you don’t know that my brother is in his second tour of duty in a combat zone. Maybe that’s why this video, of Sgt. Jeremy Cooney arriving home from Afghanistan, touched me so much. His son, who has cerebral palsy, learned to walk during his deployment as a surprise for his dad.  As you watch the video of Sgt. Cooney seeing his son walk for the first time, let’s also remember the men who never got to be welcomed home.

Thank you, military families who have paid the ultimate sacrifice.  You are in our hearts today.
