Sailor Reunited With Family
Sarah Davis has waited months for her husband to return home. Her daughter, Charlotte, has waited almost her whole life.
"His grandfather unfortunately passed away, the grandfather she's named after, so he came home for the funeral," Sarah Davis said. "He got to spend two weeks with her and then had to go back, which was much harder than meeting her in the first place."
Aaron Davis was deployed on the USS Enterprise. Living on the ship made it hard for him to have any interaction with his family, but after months of being away, he will finally see his wife and little one again.
"I couldn't sleep of course," Sarah Davis said. "We were texting all morning because he couldn't sleep."
After a 35 minute flight from Chicago, Aaron Davis finally landed in Springfield.
"I've been waiting on this day for, I mean since she's was born, to actually be able to get home and be with my family full time," Aaron Davis said.
Aaron Davis can go back his normal life and enjoy childhood moments with little Charlotte.
"Knowing that I don't have to go away right away, it's just an incredible experience," he said. "They're aren't words for it."
