Returning soldiers want nothing more than to fall into the arms of their family, but first, there’s protocol to follow. The men and women line up in full uniform for a homecoming ceremony, and are only free to greet their families once they’ve been dismissed by their commander. However, try explaining that to Kara Ogelsby.
When Kara saw her father, Lieutenant Daniel Ogelsby, it had been eight months since she had last hugged him, and she couldn’t wait a second more. While it’s usually the parents who surprise their kids upon returning from deployment, Kara’s sweet gesture stole the show in Fort Caron, Colorado. We’ll forgive her for breaking the rules – especially since she wore such stunning boots.
