My husband had left for his first deployment from Ellsworth Air Force Base. He was gone for 7 months and as any other child our daughter missed her dad dearly. Once we got the word he was coming we we wanted to make it a surprise for her. So the day of his arrival I told her we were going to the airport to pick up mommy’s friend. As she stood there holding a saying “I’m here to get my dad I just don’t know cause I can’t read yet” she had no idea she was about to get the surprise of a life time. I was so anxious to see her reaction. When he walked through the doors she was so happy to see him she threw her sign down and ran right into his arms. It was one of the most amazing feeling in the world.
