This Little Girl Couldn't Wait For The 'Home Returning' Ceremony To End And Hugged Her Dad

I can understand the feeling of being away from the father as my dad was in the army too. I couldn't resist myself to share the happiness and excitement of a little girl on returning of his dad after 8 long and tough months.

Daniel Oglesby returned a quick hug to her. He was deployed to Kuwait in February for 3rd Armored Brigade Combat Team, leaving behind his wife, Karis, and another daughter, Layla, 4.

She told that the girls miss their father in many ways. Their is a book "Lily Hates Goodbyes," which is about a young girl's dad goes to deployment. In the ending, the girl runs to hug her father. The girls decided to do same on returning of their father. "So of course I'm like, 'Yes, yes, you're going to do that,' and I encouraged it. I had no idea that Karis was actually going to do it during the ceremony," she said. "But looking back, she has no idea what the ceremony means or what the restrictions are."

Danial said it was the best welcome ever he could hope."That's the toughest part of the entire job is to be away from the family," he said. "Having that reunion, it doesn't make up for the lost time, but it's definitely a sweet moment to finally be able to see them and embrace them again."
