Make sure you have a box of tissues handy – you might need it for this one!
Anyone who has a family knows that it’s hard to be away from your kids. An hour can feel like a day, a day can feel like a week, and a week can feel like an entire month. Maybe longer.
Now imagine the life of a soldier father, often deployed for months at a time – never knowing when you might see your family next – risking your life on a daily basis for the greater good.
That’s often the case for the brave men and women in the United States military.
In this video, you’ll meet a man named John who has been deployed for 7 months. John’s wife recently gave birth, and John has a newborn baby boy who he has only met via photographs. For most of us, even the idea of being separated from your spouse during pregnancy and childbirth is unfathomable.
John doesn’t know it yet, but he’s about to get an unforgettable gift thanks to the Operation Homefront and Dove Men+Care “Mission: Care” campaign.
This isn’t the first time a Dove campaign has made me tear up, and I’m sure it won’t be the last!
