As the planes landed, a great cheer rose from all the people lined along the tarmac. Flags flew and signs were held high. My favorite was a sign that said, "Dad! I'm Here!"
The stars and stripes waved proudly from the lead plane, and the WV State flag flew from the following one. What a sight!
And then, there he was. Haley saw him before he was even off the plane--one uniform like all the others, but the face--that was her Dad!
