Cooper Waldvogel couldn’t hold back one more minute. He was getting a hug from his mommy whether the commanding officer liked it or not.
Kathryn Waldvogel, 25, served nine months Afghanistan and arrived home with the National Guard’s 114th Transportation Company Tuesday to attend the family welcoming ceremony.
KARE 11 News took a beautiful picture of the mother and child reunion that has gone viral on Facebook this week.
KARE 11 reported:
“I was longing to hold him, that’s all that I thought about,” said his mother, Kathryn Waldvogel, 25.
Her first sergeant told her and the other soldiers they would file in to the auditorium and would be dismissed shortly. But they were not to say hello to family members because it would take too long.
Cooper took care of that, running to his mother’s arms.
“He just kept smiling like he was in awe of me,” she said.
