The story describes an adorable moment where a three-year-old boy interrupts a homecoming procession to hug his mother after her nine-month tour of Afghanistan. The soldiers were waiting in line to receive orders, but the boy named Cooper Waldvogel took charge and ran up to his mother, Kathryn, a member of the National Guard. Despite the strict military protocol, Cooper's actions reduced many to tears of joy and laughter.

Kathryn expressed her excitement and longing to hold her son, and the troops watched with smiles on their faces. This was the first time in 18 months that Cooper would have both his parents together, as his father had also returned from his tour in December. The family will now be based together in Chisholm, Minnesota, so they can make up for lost time. The story also mentions Kathryn's regiment's work in moving equipment to close bases during their tour, with no combat casualties reported.
