3 Year-Old Doesn't Care About Military Protocol, Runs Into Mom's Arms

September 17, 2014

Cooper Waldvogel loves his mom more than military protocol. The 3-year-old boy could not wait for his mom to be dismissed after serving nine months in Afghanistan with the National Guard.

He ran into her arms while she and her fellow soldiers stood in line waiting to be dismissed.

"I was longing to hold him, that's all that I thought about," said his mother, Kathryn Waldvogel, 25.
