This precious moment during a troop’s homecoming ceremony melted the hearts of everybody in attendance. ❤️
Rules simply don’t matter when it comes to love. Especially, when it involves being with your loved ones.
At least that’s what 2-year-old Karis Oglesby thinks.
She didn’t think twice about running out in the middle of an Army homecoming ceremony to greet her dad, regardless of protocol.
Karis’ dad and his fellow soldiers were all standing arm-to-arm in formation at the homecoming ceremony at Fort Carson, Colorado.
Karis hadn’t seen her dad in eight months.
All of the men and women in uniform had been away from their families, exchanging their lives for a paycheck and rank in the army.
Instead of embracing their family members, who also had to sacrifice in their absence, protocol required them to wait and stare at them in silence while a superior spoke over the loudspeaker.
Karis didn’t have time for any of that though.
She spotted her father and was so overjoyed to see him that she ran out of the crowd, passed a superior officer, and into her dad’s arms.
