Little Girl Cries at Father's Military Homecoming

A little girl’s emotional reunion with her father at Texas’ Fort Hood after he returned from a nine-month military deployment to the Middle East was captured in a TikTok video posted in late June.

This video by Jerri Dawn Franklin shows her daughter clutching a sign that reads “Welcome Home Daddy” as she cries. Upon seeing her dad, she runs to his arms and the two embrace.

Franklin told Storyful this video was filmed on July 28, 2018, after her husband’s third deployment. Credit: Jerri Dawn Franklin via Storyful
