I didn't mic a family up, but I did focus on one family for this story. And sure enough, when the father got home, he talked to another station -- and when I finally found him, he said he was talked out and wanted to go home.I had a troops come home story go bad a while back. We miced up a wife who was holding a young child and talked to her. We got a lot of video of the family awaiting his return. Then after the joyful reunion we asked the husband if we could ask him a few questions and he said "no i don/'t want to be on tv" and refused to talk to us.
Fortunatly there was another group of troops coming in right behind them so we got a 2nd go at it.
