If you’re like most of us, you love a romance story from time to time. Allow these sweet and tender stories to warm your heart, then. Each of these couples is either saying hello or goodbye to their loved ones as they left or came home from being deployed in some branch of the military. It is a sweet story to see that these photos are still in existence and still well-loved even now, many years later. It just shows you that sometimes love really is as persistent and it should be, and it teaches us that it can survive many years and generations.
