Lance Cpl. Paul Amore surprises little sisters
ANCHORAGE - This can be a difficult time of the year for families with loved ones serving our nation.
Hollee Wolcoff, 7, and her sister Bailee, 8, wrote Santa Claus this year not asking for toys and treats. Instead they wished for the return of Lance Cpl. Paul Amore.
“He’s our brother,” Bailee said. “He promised he would come home.”
The man in red stopped by Bangor Naval Base in Washington to bring him home.
“I was shocked,” Paul said. “I haven’t seen them in a year. I’m just going to be happy to see them.”
Hollee and Bailee were sitting on Santa’s lap to make sure he knew what they wanted this year. What the girls didn’t know was their big brother was also listening and waiting for his cue to come out and surprise them.
“Paul, I missed you!” the girls cried when they saw their brother.
This will likely be Paul’s last Christmas at home before his first deployment. And for now, he is just happy to spend some time at home with the little shadows that look up to him so much.
“I’m speechless,” he said. “I just don’t even know how to explain it.”
Paul will be in town for about two weeks and said in that time he’s going to spend as much time as possible with his little sisters and the rest of his family.
