It’s tough when your mom or dad is serving our country, no doubt about that. Whether you’re a toddler or a school-aged child, being a military child means being without your mom or dad for long stretches of time.

Sure, he broke protocol…but come on, give the little dude a break; he warmed a whole lot of hearts in the process—including mine!
