A cute little girl provided a perfect “aww” moment when she interrupted a Fort Carson, Colorado “welcome home” ceremony by running up to give her dad, an Army soldier she hadn’t seen for eight months, a big hug.
“She was excited. She spotted me from a couple rows back and she couldn’t contain herself,” her father said, according to KKTV Channel 11 News. “I wasn’t gonna tell her no.”
In a day filled with joy and emotion, Daniel Oglesby‘s little girl stole the show when she broke away from the crowd and raced towards her daddy.
It was the first time father and daughter had seen each other in eight months, and despite still being in formation, Oglesby didn’t hesitate to give her a hug.
The crowd gave the pair applause while they waited to reunite with their returning soldiers.
Three hundred soldiers from Fort Carson’s 3rd Armored Brigade Combat Team, 4th Infantry Division returned home Tuesday from southwest Asia. The first group returned home at 6 a.m., and the other Tuesday afternoon.
And the station posted this video of the incident on its Facebook page:
