Soldiers fight not just the war but their own desire to be with their own families whenever duty calls.  These brave and selfless men and women are fathers, mothers, aunts, uncles, and somebody’s sons and daughters too. They’ve made great sacrifices just to protect us from all dangers and threats.

The least we can all do is to honor and respect them.

Hunter Dodd wanted to do more for his father. This young man from Easley, South Carolina wants to follow his dad’s footsteps. His father, Staff Sgt. Christopher Page had been away for a year serving the country in Afghanistan. So when Hunter’s school was about to award the ROTC battalion, which he led to a national competition, he could only wish that his father was there so he can make him proud.

He didn’t know that his wish came true. During the awards ceremony, Hunter’s father was in a room waiting for the moment to give him his medal.

Hunter’s 12-year-old brother was also oblivious of what was about to happen. So when they finally saw each other again, they weren’t able to contain their emotions.
