See How This Little Girl Interrupts Military Homecoming Ceremony to Greet Dad
This little girl could not wait any second longer to hug her father whom she hadn’t seen in over eight months.
After two-year-old Karis Oglesby spotted her dad 1st Lt. Daniel Oglesby in formation during the middle of a homecoming ceremony in Colorado this past Tuesday, she made a run for him.
A video caught Karis scurrying across the gymnasium in her sparkling gold boots and red, white and blue outfit. When she got to her dad, he bent down and gave her a hug before nudging her to teeter back over to her seat.
“I wasn’t worried about maintaining the integrity of the formation,” 1st Lt. Oglesby, who recently returned from Kuwait, told ABC News today. “The homecoming ceremony is all about our families who’ve had to sacrifice eight, almost nine, months without their loved ones. I was so happy to see my awesome little girl.”
Oglesby added that his toddler’s impulsive run for a hug “was a pleasant surprise.”
