Senior Airman Ron Durbin was away in a military mission for a long time, he couldn't wait for the moment when he could finally hold his little daughter and wife again.

Alison could not hold her tears as she watched them hugging each other tightly.

Moments like that make us realize how much military men sacrifice. They spend time in deployment without a chance to be with their families and see the kids grow, missing little milestones, as their first words and their first steps.

Those men merit the most valuable rewards.

Ron Durbin is allowed to spend less than a year with his family before his next deployment. Hopefully, he will cherish every moment of it!
