From Eastern Afghanistan to Oysters on the Half Shell

All five-year-old Gabriella needed was the pool, beach and lizards. And her dad. She needed her dad. She hadn’t seen him in nine months. Chief Warrant Officer Pete Sarvis had been flying an Apache attack helicopter when he was “down range” in Afghanistan. Pete, his wife Gina and Gabriella, were the guests of Operation R&R, Hilton Head, a non-profit organization that provides military families the opportunity to reconnect at the beach after a long deployment overseas at little or no cost.

“My daughter loves pools and catching lizards, so we had to circle the entire condo, finding all the lizards in the area,” Pete said. “I’ve been gone for nine months, so whatever your daughter wants, she gets.”

“It’s so nice just to relax,” Gina said. “We’ve been deployed six times, and we usually have to be somewhere right away, rushing around, meeting people. Here, there’s no schedule. We can do whatever we like.”
