CHESAPEAKE, Va., April 30 /PRNewswire/ -- Cox 11 is proud to present "Homecoming: A Cox Video Diary," which is a snapshot of the emotional reunion between local military personnel and their loved ones. It will premiere on Sunday, May 10 at 8:00 p.m. on Cox 11.

Through the emotional images and interviews obtained by Cox 11, Homecoming documents the story of commitment and sacrifice, the longings and joys that are connected with the long separation of area military personnel from their loved ones. Over several weeks, Cox 11 crews waited at the dock, on the flight line and at local bases to capture the long-awaited arrival of local servicemen and women after deployment from overseas and the reunions with their families.

"Cox is proud to present this special diary as our way of paying tribute to our military and their families for their honorable service to our country. Being away from their families is a huge sacrifice they make and we would like to recognize this," said Leigh Woisard, Vice President of Government and Public Affairs, Cox Hampton Roads.

Homecoming will run every weekend in May. Below is the schedule of airtime:
