A United States Navy sailor met his child for the first time with just over a week until Christmas.
And the child’s face while the family hugs is remarkably adorable.
Electronics Technician 3rd Class Tyler Hernandez embraced his family following the guided-missile cruiser USS Vella Gulf’s (CG 72) return to homeport in Norfolk, Virginia.
Vella Gulf had been away since April 23 as an independent deployer. The unit's primary purpose was to support maritime security operations in the Arabian Gulf by utilizing their missile defense capability.
