This is Brooke and her husband Peter.
Peter was deployed on a ship at sea with the Marine Corps for 8 months. They had only been married about a year when he was deployed. When we got home, Brooke traveled 14 hours from Michigan to North Carolina to see him.
Brooke’s Facebook post from that day:
“Got pulled over today
Officer said: Do you know the speed limit on this freeway?
Officer: Yes. And you were going 81. Any particular reason why you’d be going so fast?
Me: MY HUSBAND IS GETTING HOME FROM DEPLOYMENT, SIR! I GOTS TA GET TO NORTH CARALINA 😉 ”
(She did end up getting a ticket, but admits that she deserved it)
“I remember scanning all of the faces under the covers to find my Peter. It took a few minutes for us to find each other amidst the mob. We embraced and held each other tight. It was all worth it.”
