Cathy: When I got back from my first deployment in Saudi, I got back at midnight and I signed out on leave at 6:00 the next morning.
John: Well, homecomings are wonderful, that's the best part. Especially when you have a dual military couple like my son and his wife. It was very important for him to have that time with them.
Cathy: Having my two daughters, it's a lot easier to justify deploying. You know why you're doing it. I mean, you know what it's for. And you can look at a picture of them and you can say 'I'm doing this for them.'
John: I'm very proud of him. I'm very proud of him. He's made quite a life for himself, and the Army's been a big catalyst to that.
