Soldiers reunite with loved ones

Military men and women put their lives on the line every day to protect our freedoms and the lives of others, often leaving behind family and friends for months at a time. On May 17, 2019, this Dutch soldier returned home after a five-month operation in Mali, Africa, and was reunited with a loved one. “What’s in a hug? Security, comfort, and care,” says Kevon Owen, a clinical psychotherapist in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. “When a hug is done right it conveys all of these things in a way that is nearly primal in nature. Think about when you were a baby and you were held. Security, you were safe. Comfortable, you were at peace. Care, you were loved. Our mind holds on to this and craves it to this day.” Have a veteran in your life?
