Military protocol was no match for one little boy’s love for his mom during an emotional family reunion.

Kathryn Waldvogel waited patiently in line for dismissal after serving nine months in Afghanistan with the National Guard’s 114th Transportation Company. Her 3-year-old son Cooper, however, couldn’t wait to be in her arms. As the soldiers waited for a formal dismissal before saying hello to their families, Cooper decided he’d had more than enough of waiting. He darted across the floor of the Inver Grove Heights Training Center auditorium and jumped into his mother’s arms.

More than five million Americans are currently living with Alzheimer’s disease or some form of dementia. Statistics show that one in three seniors dies at the hands of this terrible illness.

Common symptoms of dementia and Alzheimer’s go far beyond just memory loss. Sufferers can also experience confusion, changes in behavior, hallucinations, and problems with communication. The ordeal is often frightening and confusing for those who are afflicted. There is currently no cure for dementia, but there are treatments that can help patients manage their symptoms.

While the disease is the sixth leading cause of death in the United States, funding for Alzheimer’s and dementia research is quite limited. To help spread awareness, two young men decided to share the story of their mother’s struggles.

What they have to say is something we all need to hear.
