“Cara, she made eye contact with me in the crowd and decided she wanted to say hello a little early so she ran up and gave me a big hug and I just returned the hug back to her,” Lt. Daniel Oglesby said.

“I was trying to decide whether or not it was good practice to break formation, but I didn’t have the heart in me to not give my little baby a hug, so I had to go ahead and bend over and give her a hug and kiss on the forehead,” said Oglesby.

Smart move Lieutenant. Smart move.

Now where’d I put those Kleenex?
