Surprise Returns of Deployed Military: The Sweetest Moments of All

(SACRAMENTO, CA) - There are few things that affect a person more than the unexpected and unanticipated return of a deployed member of the military.

Being in war is a risk at all times, never let anyone tell you it isn't true. Family members have every right to be terribly concerned and sometimes they get the worst possible news.

When members of the military aren't being injured and killed by roadside bombs and poor military planning, they fall victim to trauma and stress and often to environmental hazards that the government doesn't bother disclosing the danger of.

We all know somebody who has been sent off to war, and that empathy is why it is such a powerful thing.

Plus the fact that people just miss their loved ones as expected. Fathers, sons, daughters and moms, brothers and sisters and children, and as you will see in the videos below, even 'master' and the reunions with family dogs may be the most powerful of all!

So get out your box of Kleenex and prepare to take a little journey into the hearts of American families who are taken by surprise by these videotaped reunions.

Americans of all ages are sent to the most dangerous places on earth. Women are in combat,

Tim King's articles explore political and social injustice. He believes that Genocide and Human Rights violations are unacceptable in this world, across the board with no exceptions; and that resolving and isolating this dramatic problem should be a primary goal of all of the world's governments, and that all other political goals, particularly those related to the American military industrial complex, need to undergo a massive reorganization. The Human Rights Tim and other writers demand are called for under international law, by the 1948 UN Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

At the center of the problems that lead to human suffering, are religious governments, followed by religious interference in western politics, where there is no measurable success- only more war.

As a news editor, Tim believes there are other massive issues that mainstream media should better address.

These include human trafficking, which is a massively ignored issue, the erosion of the rights of American citizens and associated, increasing police brutality, U.S. connections to Mexican drug cartels, the nearly unregulated big pharma industry and FDA.

Also of paramount importance, are clean air and water issues and the environmental impacts of contaminated U.S. military bases. He believes all of these subjects need to become a larger focus of all media.

Tim reports regularly on developments relating to the 2009 Sri Lanka Genocide of Tamil people that left well over 100k people missing or dead. He also writes about the constant Human Rights violations and Genocide in Balochistan, and other regions.
