Returning Soldier Surprises Daughter

Nov 2, 2011

Railey Bostick ran as fast as her little legs would carry her when she spotted her father outside her school Tuesday afternoon. “Daddy!” the 3-year-old cried as she jumped into Pfc. Chase Bostwick’s awaiting arms. “I was so worried about you, Daddy,” the little girl said as she patted the back of his head underneath his Army cap. Chase told her he was worried about her, too, as he hugged her tighter. Aside from a brief emergency leave, Chase has not seen his daughter in about a year. He just returned from military duty in Afghanistan last month.
