Young Daughter Runs to Greet Her Father at Homecoming


We perhaps sometimes forget that every soldier who goes to fight has a family back at home. This special moment between a young daughter and her father helps us to remember that – thankfully, the cameras caught it all.

At a homecoming ceremony at Fort Carson, proceedings were under way but this little girl decided not to keep with the script. She ran straight up to her father and hugged him, a gesture he reciprocated.

It’s something that was totally against protocol. While soldiers are being honored, it’s usually a time for deep thought, but sometimes actions speak much louder than words. In short, this little girl just wanted to be with her dad. While discipline is important – and something the forces thrive on – some occasions are just too important. This video encapsulates the raw emotions better than any thank you speech could ever do. Please SHARE this video on Facebook.
