Shaw AFB Kids' Deployment 2012

On September 19, 2012, about 300 kids participated in their own deployment. Many of these kids have a parent deployment or getting ready to deploy soon. MSgt Melton was in charge of organizing this exercise, and we had the pleasure of helping him. Yes, we both cried when the kids "came home".

Our job a couple days earlier was to stuff these backpacks
with lots of cool things needed for deployment.
