John F. Kennedy once said, “Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country”. This quote is embodied to the letter by our brave men and women in the armed forces. Every day throughout the world with their continued sacrifice, our freedom is ensured.
 
If you have a family member coming home after a long service tour abroad, organizing a homecoming might make you excited with a little bit of nervousness. Here are a few tips from Military.com to help prepare a homecoming and to put your mind at ease:
 

Experience has shown that virtually all military members returning from deployment, and their household members, experience at least a little uneasiness as they readjust to their normal environment. Changes, some more subtle than others, have taken place during the deployment for the military member, their family, and there friends and colleagues. To successfully cope with change requires that we make corresponding adjustments in attitude, thought, and behavior
 

We know that getting back a sense of normalcy in the house might take some time, but with the right kind of preparations, things will be back to normal in no time.
