I’ve been witness to several military homecomings over the years. The emotion that is brought between husband, wife and children, when they reconnect after being away from each other for months is so strong it can bring anyone to tears. You can feel the pain in your heart when seeing their facial expressions.
Many of these military families have missed special memories and events while they were away. The birth of their child, baby’s first milestones, holidays, birthdays, so many memories that they will never be able to get back.
As a mother of two children, I can’t imagine having to be away from them for more than just a days time at school. Some days, it’s hard to even watch them walk onto the school bus. I’m so thankful for those who serve our country and make that sacrifice.
Dove Men+Care has partnered with Operation Homefront with the goal of bringing home 300 military service members to their families.
Watch this video of John meeting his newborn son after being away from his family for seven months. It’s so special that Dove can help make moments like this happen.
My family purchases Dove products and it makes me happy to know that a little bit is being given back to a good cause. To help the Operation Homefront program, Dove is giving a portion of each Dove Men+Care purchase to help care for our troops.
There will be 299 other stories like Johns, I can’t wait to hear about the other dads.
