Welcome home

Last week I covered a homecoming ceremony for a group of Iowa National Guard soldiers returning from a tour in the Middle East. After working the event I collected my things and made my way down the hallway, behind a soldier and his family. They all held hands. Sometimes the best shots happen when you’re leaving.
