The sacrifices our troops make when they leave their family and friends not knowing if they will return is among the ultimate any citizen can make for his/her country. So, when our brave warriors return to their loved ones we all feel the emotion as if it was our own family member safely coming home to us.
Little 11-year old Karleigh plays softball unaware of who awaits to surprise her. Sgt. Mike Clark had been deployed to Iraq and Kuwait for the last 9 months and even though Karleigh knew he was set to return home soon she had no idea exactly when that would happen.
Sgt. Clark had been deployed before for long stretches and at that time his daughter was quite young. He would worry when he left her at the young age of four, if she would even remember him or not. Even though the military life was no stranger to the Clark family, the separation is always hard.
Watch as all involved waited for Sgt. Clark to come out to the middle of the field as his daughter played. The umpire and everyone at the game aware of his arrival, the referee ready to stop the game when he approached. And then she saw him, ran crying into his arms and he scooped up his daughter in a timeless embrace all who witnessed felt in their hearts.
