NJ toddler recognizes Marine-dad on welcome home banner

A South Jersey toddler may not be old enough to form full sentences yet, but it's pretty clear he knows what he wants for Christmas.

Viewer Laura Daccardi LaPorte sent Action News the precious video of her 16-month old grandson, Joey Lenahan, seeing his dad on a welcome home banner.

Joey's mom and dad are from Egg Harbor Township, but now live in Hawaii where Nikk is stationed with the Marines.

Even though Nikk has been deployed for the past six months, it's clear that daddy has his heart.

We can't wait to see the actual reunion!
