CHEEKTOWAGA, NY - Those who serve in the military are willing to put parts of their life on hold.
For John Kaniecki, that meant waiting a few months to meet his new born daughter Jade.
On Tuesday, John returned from an eight month tour in the Persian Gulf, aboard the aircraft carrier USS John C. Stennis (CVN 74), to say hello to his little girl.
Photojournalist Dooley O'Rourke was at the Buffalo Niagara International Airport when young Jade met her dad for the very first time.
