Major Raymond Fails was in for a big surprise when he returned from a nine month deployment June 2nd 2014. His son, RaiDion Fails, who had just graduated from College the previous week was the only person he knew was going to be greeting him home, however the entire family pulled together to make it even more special. His Grandparents Leon and May, mother Jerri, Uncle Charles, Brother Mike, Rosio girlfriend of RaiDions, and lastly his proud, loving wife Nichelle were all there anxiously awaiting their soldiers return. The Fails family are no stranger to deployments. This was Ray's fourth deployment but Nichelle held down the home front with the support of her military family, the HHB 31st ADA Brigade.
Proud Mother right here! These ceremonies are so exhilarating. You can feel the hum of excitement through the air when they march in the door!
After a singing "The Army Goes Rolling Along" and a few words from command they are finally released back into the open arms of their families.
Everyone was excited to hear their story! They were even interviewed by our local news reporters! It was such an honor meeting this family and being able to capture a few special moments for them.
