Deployed Military Dad Reads Book To Daughter

She’s two years old:

It’s neat how the fact it was pre-recorded didn’t matter.  You can tell the little girl was absolutely thrilled.

The USO offered this service in Kuwait when I went through in 09. Possibly one of the most sincere uses of technology ever.

I have done this twice both from Iraq in ’10 and ’11. My kids got into a fight with each other the first year as to which one was going to read a book with Daddy and in ’11 they kept talking to me on the TV and got angry that I would not respond to their questions. They still treasure the books and will still say that “this is a book daddy read to us from work” when we read them at night.
