VIDEO: Beautiful moment Soldier dad breaks rank to cuddle daughter

A LITTLE girl who couldn’t wait to hug her daddy returning from duty after eight months away has melted hearts across the globe.

We’ve all have seen videos of the special moment soldiers return home to their loved ones, but this one is particularly adorable.


Lt. Daniel Oglesby had just returned from duty in southeast Asia and was standing to attention in Fort Carson, Colorado along with 300 other soldiers when he was spotted by his daughter.

Returning soldiers are supposed to wait for a formal welcome from a commander, after which they are dismissed and can greet their loved ones, but this little girl just couldn’t wait and ran up to her Dad who then broke formation to hug his ‘baby’.

The heart-warming moment was captured on video and is going viral online.
