signage destruction

I live on an army base right now. My job is a government job and is stationed on an army base. They also allow us to live in BLM barracks, so we are around a lot of other army people. For the past couple of weeks, signs and posters have been appearing on fences along the main road for soldiers coming home. Handpainted signs saying "welcome home daddy" and "i'm so proud of you" and my personal favorite "i missed my hottie, come home to me so i can hold your body". Thats clever.

Anyway probably well over 200 signs were up on the fences, wives, girlfriends and children waiting for their soldiers to come home from Iraq. They were due to come home this weekend, until everyone found out today that they are being sent back on another tour and never even made it home. They are out for another 6 months. All that excitment and build-up over nothing. Today, all of the wives were outside, tearing up signs with reddened eyes, tears streaming down their faces as their hopes were crushed. The husbands and fathers who were almost home free are once again putting their lives at risk for the "good of our country".

There are a few ladies I work with whose husbands were due to come home and now they are completely crushed. I can't imagine how emotionally heavy that would be. They were just crying in their cubicles and ended up leaving early. God bless all the men who risk their lives and God bless the women and children who are left alone because of a senseless war.
