ANCHORAGE, Alaska — Easter came a day early for one military family stationed at Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson, who were reunited Saturday for the first time in six months.
Harry Dunmire and his wife Alecia have spent 12 of the last 18 months apart, each of them serving in the Air Force, being stationed in Afghanistan and Africa respectively.
Being apart though is what makes this family appreciate each other. Both Harry and Alecia have spent the last 14-years in the Air Force, being deployed a combined 16 times.
“When you have time together, you make the best of it, because you don’t know when they’re going to call and say you got to go,” said Alecia Dunmire.
