At the event culminating a yearlong deployment to Iraq, then-Vice President Joe Biden remarked: “I can speak on behalf of the National Guard family assembled here when I say, as a Delawarean, I stand here steeped in pride; as an American, I am awed by the quality and the significance of your service; and as a parent, as a father, I can't tell you the feeling I have in welcoming home a son.” Credit: Rob Carr/AP Photo

I want to spend as much time as I can with my family, and I want to help change the country and the world for the better. That duty does much more than give me purpose; it gives me something to hope for. It makes me nostalgic for the future.” Credit: @DrBiden - Dr. Jill Biden’s Instagram
