    Here are just a few from this past weekend. One of my closest friends welcomed her husband home from Iraq. He got to see his 1 year old son, too...who he hasnt seen since he was 4 months old (and even then it was only for a week)

    It was SOOOO cramped and everything went SO fast that I didnt have the greatest experience taking these. But she liked them...so thats all that matters. :)

    The motorcycle veterans people came out to keep away any protesters...I thought that was awesome. :)

    Thank you for sharing these Sarah! I think you did a nice job.

    btw - I have seen the HA's provide protection from protesters at homecomings and funerals here.

    Sarah, I read your post last week about the set up of this and I'm so glad it worked out. I love the kissing picture and the father/son.

    So did you replace your lens or get an external flash?

    I used my 50mm f/1.8 lens that I got right before this...and no, I didnt get a flash. It would have been nice, but there really wasnt any room to use it even if I did have one. I just bumped up the ISO and used a good size aperture and hoped for the best. :)

    Definitely not the Hell's Angels. Some kind of guard. I have several friends that do the rides.

    Ed: Patriot Guard riders.

    Thanks VI. I know the guys in her photos are not HAs. I meant I have seen HAs at these functions in AZ and CA.
