Oh Snap! A Hero's Welcome

Oh Snap! A Hero's Welcome


Sailor Nick Mannor embraces his wife Jenny after the USS Eisenhower arrived in Norfolk, VA, yesterday. The aircraft carrier and its 6,000 sailors have been conducting maritime security for the US military operation in Afghanistan and just returned home after a five-month deployment.

Nicole0112, I couldn't agree with you more.

I can't express how awesome it feels when you watch your husband step off the plane (or boat) after a long deployment and you finally get to hug him after so long. And as for the person who thinks the US military aren't heroes, then I'd like to see them leave their family for 6-12 months at a time and risk their lives to assure people's freedom to say things like "the military aren't heroes".

obviously, cakeshina-blahblah wouldn't know a real hero if it bit them on the ass. show me someone more heroic than someone who's willing to lose their life to save and help others, to miss their family and friends for months and years at a time for their job. you're ignorant and disrespectful and you have a lot of learning to do. dumbass.

Yes it is a bit like the V-J photo. It's really sweet to see our men come home to their families. Welcome home I say.

As an army brat it does hurt that so many do not consider military personnel heroes. If nothing else think of them as people that are away from family for a great length of time and the family that they leave behind...these pictures are awesome

I live in Norfolk and work for the Navy at the shipyard. . .what a surprise that you featured the Eisenhower here! It is great to have them home.

Love this photo! It reminds me of a modern day version of the V-J day photo in Times Square.
