Three-year-old Caden Buss, son of Seaman Jonathan Buss, hospital corpsman, 3rd Light Armored Reconnaissance Battalion, steals one last hug before his dad deploys to Afghanistan April 26, 2012. “Tell your mom we want to get pancakes when I get back,” Seaman Buss said to Caden moments before the bus pulled out. Pancakes is his and his dad’s special treat, Caden explained after the buses pulled out. (Official USMC photo taken by Diane Durden)
