A video of a young girl running to her father during a homecoming ceremony for the 3rd Armored Brigade Combat Team has gone viral, reaching more than 27,00 shares and almost 50,000 likes on Facebook.
Two-year-old Karis Oglesby could not wait any second longer to hug her father Lt. Daniel Oglesby whom she hadn’t seen in over eight months after being deployed in Kuwait. Wearing her sparkling gold boots and a US-flag inspired dress, Karis rushed to her father when she spotted him in the formation during the middle of a homecoming ceremony on Tuesday.
Daniel quickly bent down and gave her a hug before he direct her back to her mom and older sister.
Best video of the day! A little girl couldn't wait for a homecoming ceremony to end at Fort Carson before she ran to her Daddy! KKTV photojournalist Pedro Laumbach captured this awesome moment.
