As someone who admittedly loves all those "soldier comes home to family" videos out there, I was really touched by this little girl who wanted to welcome her daddy home, and she wanted to do it now.

Lt Daniel Ogelsby and his men from the 3rd Armored Brigade Combat Team were returning from a training mission in Kuwait to their home base of Fort Carson in Colorado after a nine month deployment. As the soldiers received their official welcome home, little Karas Ogelsby decided that she had waited long enough to be reunited with her dad, and charged across the floor to hug him.

Like most of us would, he happily broke ranks to hug her before pointing her back to her mom.
