I had my first North Island Naval Air Station Homecoming with the USS Roosevelt last week. After a double pump deployment the aircraft carrier the USS Roosevelt returned home to Coronado! It was one of the sweetest homecomings I have witnessed.
Some of my favorite moments from this North Island Homecoming:
- Watching the wives & girlfriends stand together to welcome home their spouses.
- The way the fathers face lite up when he first saw his son, after six months away
- The son’s helmet. It was decorated specifically for homecoming with helicopters and flags. My favorite part was the quote “My dads got my six.”
- Megan’s signs! They where so sweet.
