    i like that it will help a lot of families. I have a lot of family in the military and can understand why they need something like this. when our love ones come back from war they are not the same, something has changed.

    So I just watched the video of the homecomings and I just loved it. Yes, I cried. Out of 2 deployments, I only had 2 homecoming in the traditional way. I flew to a hospital the first time, just as the unit was coming home. Anyway, I know the fight of which you speak. It is well worth it, but it can be difficult. I really can’t favorite any part of the app, other than to say the video really hits home.

    I love the real stories! They give so much hope, they made me tear up a little.

    Except for seeing all the happy families when their family member came home from overseas it was really sad! I can’t imagine how hard it is for those families!!!

    i cried watching the above video. i like that there is an organization that will help couples. its so important to keep a strong, godly long distance relationship. my husband was deployed while we were dating/engaged. i think a lot of it has to do with people having affairs while they are deployed. its sad to see people break up. my husband told me some stuff that went on over in iraq when he was there.

    I liked how happy the kids were to see their fathers return.

  • " target="_blank">Howell

    I liked that the video recognizes that families may have marital problems after a loved one returns home.

  • i love how it is encouraging these spouses to reconnect on date nights

  • " target="_blank">Jaimee Sorensen

    I like that they understand the strain the military puts on families and the sacrifices those involved make both the soldier and the family

    I love seeing the children so excited about seeing their daddies again, and seeing families getting back together, since being apart is so very hard.

    They have some pretty neat date ideas.

  • " target="_blank">Julie Lynn Bickham

    I think its great, things must be tough when loved ones come back. Every couple needs something like this esp couples in the service.

  • " target="_blank">Kathy S

    I like the suggestion the app has to rekindle your romance by visiting favorite places from the past.

    The personal stories are very emotional… especially since my best friend had her hubby deployed for the first year of her son’s life. I can’t imagine the sacrifices these families make for all of us. What a great program.

    I like that it brings a problem to the surface that is reality for the military and now they can work on the problem. I can’t imagine going to war and not changing in many ways. It would be hard to adjust to life at home, Now maybe they can get some help.

  • The date ideas are great and I like that while it’s geared to military families, any couple can really utilize the tips. I also like that it’s a way to help our servicemen on another front.
