In the US Navy the sailors leave their families and homes for up to 10 months at a time. When a ship or a squadron returns home, the families and loved ones run to their sailors with joy and abandonment. When I photograph a homecoming I witness the sacrifice and the heartache that the men and women who serve and their families go through every day. They stand in the rain and the cold, waiting, waving, flying flags and handmade banners, they see their sailors, they smile, they scream, they cry, their sailor is home.
