This little girl in Colorado hadn't seen her father, an Army soldier, in eight months, and she wasn't about to wait one minute longer!

When soldiers return, it is customary for them to stand in formation for a formal welcome before they are dismissed to greet their friends and family. However, little Cara Oglesby couldn't help but interrupt! The video shows Cara running out of the crowd and to hug her daddy.

“Cara, she made eye contact with me in the crowd and decided she wanted to say hello a little early so she ran up and gave me a big hug and I just returned the hug back to her,” Lt. Daniel Oglesby told FOX 21 News.

Watch the awesome moment in the video!
