It's not the first time a precious father-daughter moment has caught our attention, and it's surely not the last. But the impromptu hug captured between this determined little lady and her solider dad is so heart-grabbing, it makes us tear up every time we replay the clip.
Watch what happens when little Karas Ogelsby spots her father, Lt.. Daniel Ogelsby, among the ranks in a forma military exercise after he just returned home from a nine-month deployment in the Middle East. A crowd of loved ones has gathered at Fort Carson in Colorado to welcome the 3rd Armored Brigade Combat Team from a training mission in Kuwait, and as the team is proceeding with their dignified welcome home ceremony, local news stations' cameras are rolling.
All of a sudden, a little girl dressed in sparkly gold boots and an American flag dress runs toward the line of soldiers. It seems little Karas was unable to hang on even a minute longer for that long-awaited hug from her daddy, and--as a collective "aww" is heard from the crowd--she bravely goes right for it.
Dad, clearly touched by his bold little girl's act, reaches right down for that bear-hug he's been thinking about for months.
And us? We teach for the tissues, of course.
