Tech. Sgt. James Hodgman, of the 60th Air Mobility Wing, shares what being a military father means to him and encourages all military parents to cherish every moment with their children. (U.S. Air Force photo) Cherish every moment

As the car drives off, he stares out the window, hoping his wife and children will be all right for the next six months. This scene was my reality in September 2015 when I left for my most recent deployment, a day before my son’s third birthday.

(U.S. Air Force photo by Staff Sgt. Benjamin Gonsier) Care under fire: Nurses provide medical, emotional support for those in need
A doctor’s office can induce feelings of uncertainty and anguish, but those emotions quickly fade away when a warmhearted nurse greets you.
