Its been a busy October for military homecomings! I got to meet the Allchin family as they welcomed home their husband and dad! His tour was with the USNS Mercy with his helicopter squadron HSC-21 on NAS Coronado. The crew returned on four helicopters and for this former aircrew wife brought back a lot of fond memories hanging out my husband’s squadron. Here’s a few of my favorite images from their homecoming.
Capt. Jason Newsom returned home to his family after 7 months overseas at Camp Pendleton earlier this month! I had the pleasure of meeting his wonderful wife Pricilla and their handsome son, I had a great time talking and getting to know about them while waiting for Marines to arrive. Their son even has a knack for photography and was very into learning how the camera worked! As a military wife myself I can relate to the huge array of emotions that come with homecomings! The Marine Corps Community Services of Camp Pendleton, MCCSCP, provided a bouncy house and inflated obstacle course to keep all the kiddos occupied while they waited; needless to say it those were a huge hit! I know the Newsom’s are happy to be back together and I was honored to document this time in their lives for them!
