Photos Showing Couples Saying Goodbye Before the War Takes Them Apart

During the 20th century, there had been so many wars that a large percentage of american men had to leave their homes and go fight the enemy. Many of them had to leave wife and kids behind, while some of them had to say good bye to their girlfriends. It was very hard for them to say goodbye without knowing whether they would meet again. Many of those goodbyes were the last they exchanged and only a few of the couples were reunited after the war was over or they were severely injured and had to go back to their home.

Being in a war is the most barbaric and violent thing that any person can do. Like most of them say, the only thing that keeps them going and not letting go is thinking about their loves one waiting for them back home.
