Navy Lieutenant returns from Middle East, has emotional reunion with children

Three kids had no idea that they were in for a special day at their schools.

Their dad, Navy Lt. Richard Gagnier had just got back home from a 13-month long deployment in the Middle East and decided that he wasn’t going to wait a second later to wrap his arms around them.

Lt. Gagnier told WMUR, “It’s honestly beyond words. Thirteen months is an eternity to be away from your three kids, so this is a very special day for me.”
