Another Soldier Comes Home

As a father of tow children under the age of 6, I often imagine my life if I had to be away from my family for any length of time. It has to be one of the hardest things a parent could ever do, leave your family behind, as you serve our country.

This story will bring a tear to your eyes. And every time I see one of these videos, I do the same thing.

Eight months ago, 4-year-old Carrina Kaluza last saw her dad, who had been deployed in Afghanistan serving in the Air Force. However, this past Monday morning, Carrina got the surprise of a lifetime when her dad, Master Sgt. Tim Kaluza, surprised her during her kindergarten class and wrapped her up in a hug.

The part that got me was the shouting of “Daddy!” by Carinna.

From the Valdosta Daily Times:

Master Sgt. Kaluza with the 824 BDS at Moody Air Force had been away from his family for eight months during a deployment to Afghanistan. This was only one of his several deployments.

“Too many to count, I couldn’t even tell you,” said Kaluza.

His wife Ashely Kaluza was able to see him on Saturday, but for Carrina, 6-year-old Savannah and 20 month old Alaina, Monday was the first day in eight months that they have seen their dad in person and not just on a computer screen during Skype sessions.

I am not one to spoil the moment. Enjoy it and have a box of tissues near by:

God bless our men and women in uniform. And God watch over them and their families, while they are away, fighting for us and our way of life.
