Navy dad reunited with 3-year-old daughter after a year of deployment

Her face will brighten your day

After a year of separation, Navy serviceman Malcolm Frazier surprised his 3-year-old daughter Jaslynn at preschool. Her face will keep you happy all day. Frazier has served in the Navy for 15 years. After multiple deployments, his family is no stranger to the sacrifice of separation and the joy of coming back together. "It was hard on my family when Malcolm was deployed because we missed him a lot," said his mother-in-law, Murita Wright. They say it takes a village, and that is exactly what this strong family has built. While on deployment, Frazier's daughter, Jaslynn, and his wife, Jasmine, lived with Murita in Oklahoma. For a year, the women bonded to raise Jaslynn. Together, they built a strong team. Jasmine taught at local elementary school and Jaslynn started preschool. While the team had built a strong foundation, the family was overjoyed when Frazier returned home. Since returning to Oklahoma, Frazier has re-enlisted and is now stationed in San Diego. This time, Jasmine and Jaslynn joined him and are settling into their new California home. They even welcomed in a new member to the family! Three months ago, Jasmine gave birth to a beautiful little boy, Elias. Thank you to all our men, women and families in uniform.Each week, we’re bringing you the sweetest military homecomings.
