Army Reserve Staff Sgt. Brett Bennethum was preparing to depart from Fort Dix, N.J., for Iraq, leaving behind his pregnant wife and two little girls. His family was there to see him off.

His commanding officer didn't have the heart to tell Paige she had to let go of her daddy.

If this touching story doesn't bring a tear to your eye, there's somethin' wrong with ya.
