Every now and then you get the opportunity to really capture a special moment and my flight back to Raleigh this day was one of them! During our flight from Charlotte to Raleigh the stewardess announced CPL Bryan Hepler was returning from nearly a year away in Afghanistan with the Marine Corps. Always being prepared with my gear I made it to the RDU entrance prior to Bryan and informed his family that he was on his way up, (easy to identify since they had an enormous banner with his photo). With my camera at the ready I was able to capture some heartfelt moments as his parents, family and friends greeted him thankful to see him again.
Thanks for your incredible service to our country Bryan!
