CABOT, Ark. (KTHV) -- Saying goodbye is never easy, and for military families it can be that much more difficult. But on Thursday there was a moment reminding all of us how sweet a return home can be.
At Cheer City United it's no stretch to say there is plenty of enthusiasm but today there was more, much more.
"When you're gone you know, it affects you one way or the other. I don't care who you are it does," said Master Sergeant Jeff Wade.
Wade is a military man through and through. Working quality assurance for the Air Force he's made more than 40 tours overseas.
"It got worse every time. It never got better. Ever," he said.
Each one becoming more difficult, because it meant one more goodbye to his prized possession- his 10-year-old daughter Abigail.
"You slow down and that's when you think about it the most and it stinks," Wade continued.
