Sailors Aboard the USS Kaufmann Back in the Arms of Loved Ones
NORFOLK, VA. (WAVY.com)—
After six long months apart, the toughest wait may be this one.
Close enough to see.
But, apparently, not close enough.
“They all look alike,” one woman said.
“I don’t see him, yet,” another said.
The guessing game for hundreds of loved ones finally got solved when sailors aboard the USS Kaufmann spilled onto the pier at Naval Station Norfolk.
Just for the record—they don’t all look alike. But maybe I’ve been doing this long enough (eighteen years the day he came home!) to be able to find my sailor in a sea of uniforms.
The boy is back in town!
