Most of us have not been asked to sacrifice at all to support either the actions in Iraq or Afghanistan. The sacrifice has fallen mostly onto those families with members in the military.
My son-in-law is an Air Force Officer, but he’s been relatively safe as a Jag Officer serving in Italy, and now Alaska. However, I’ve seen him only twice in the last four years, and seen my daughter and granddaughter only four times since she was born three years ago.
The separation hasn’t been easy.
But I can’t even imagine what it must be like for someone in high school to be separated from a parent for a year; to have them miss all the football games or choir concerts, or plays. To have them miss you birthdays, or the time when you came home from the DMV with your drivers license, or your prom.
And I can’t even begin to imagine what it’s like to have someone I love serving in a war zone.
But you’ve experienced many of these things yourself. Your family has born the brunt of the sacrifice, and we’d to say thank you, and to honor you and your family for your dedication to your country.
So, once again this year, we are offering to give any senior who’s mother or father is serving on active military duty in either place a free basic senior pictures package, worth $305.
Other military families get a 10% discount.
This includes our Basic Senior Portraits Session, an hour long and prints of your choice, up to that value. If you want a longer session, or more prints, simply pay the difference.
No strings attached. You pay nothing for either the session or the prints (up to the $305 value of that package).
When you call the studio (503-588-0902) to set up your consultation, simple tell us that you’re calling about the Military Family Special. Remember, this is for CURRENT ACTIVE DUTY IN EITHER LOCATION ONLY.
However, since we’re bearing all the costs of these sessions, we do reserve the right to limit the number should the response be greater than we can handle.
