The caption of this photo sent to us read: "My mother-in-law's face (a retired Navy Chief herself) the first time she saw her son after returning home from Afghanistan in 2010. This mother and son are two of six service members in an immediate household of eight. There are a total of 9 service members in both Navy and Army." That level of patriotism and dedication inspires us. And the deep love of a mother is captured beautifully in this moment.
