The Return

This photo titled "The Return" won this month's "Kodak Moment." It captured a soldier returning from Iraq. The photographer says:
I took this photo at the Marine Corps Air Station in Beaufort, South Carolina as a group of U.S. Marines were returning home from the war in Iraq. As soon as they arrived, it began to downpour. I was lucky enough to capture the joy they were all feeling as they were getting drenched in the rain (which most of them hadn't seen in months), coupled with finally getting to see their families again.

The two people walking and embracing are brother and sister. This was such a wonderful moment for everyone and I'm so happy I was able to capture it for them!

Please remember to pray for our soldiers and the families who are separated from them today.
