Daddy-daughter dances are a staple of growing up numerous young ladies and women. There are a lot of memories to make at those schools’ dances and it’s an incredible way to bond together with your father. But what’s a young lady to do on the off chance that she doesn’t have a father? For one small young lady, an entire group of soldiers and service members ventured up to create her night one to remember.

The small girl’s father was a soldier. Cayleigh Hinton was 4 years old when her father died in a military training accident. Without her father around, she had no one to require her to her school’s upcoming daddy-daughter dance. This event is important for a lot of families, and her mother was stressed about what to do.

So she sent a request to have somebody from the National Guard take her little girl to the dance. She and her late husband had talked about this event for a long time, and she decided to form it happen for her.
First, Sergeant Joseph Bierbrodt saw her request and felt up to the task.

From his viewpoint, “it had been done “. He elaborated further by saying to ABA 7 Chicago :

” it wasn’t indeed truly a choice for me. I see it as an honour to be able to do this for her”

So Sergeant Bierbrodt accepted the request and started to form plans because he wanted to make the night special for Cayleigh.

Sergeant Bierbrodt did not know the family at all. He just believed that it was the right thing to do, and he wanted to make the night as special as possible for Cayleigh.

As a father himself, he knew that he would need somebody to do this for his girls on the off chance that the opportunity emerged. He tells the Chicago Tribune:

“I consider it a colossal honor to be able to do this. We never disregard the ones who have cleared out, or take off their families unattended.”

He also arrived with some special gifts. He made sure to come with a bouquet. He too got his date for the night a teddy bear and a stuffed dog that his daughter had loved.

Sergeant Bierbrodt didn’t fair act alone. An entire community of individuals worked together.

In addition to a limo to bring the pair to the dance, a whole lot of service members got together to escort them. Arriving at the Our Lady of Humility School, where the dance was being held, were the Patriot Guard, police, and firefighters in addition to Sergeant Bierbrodt and Cayleigh.

And Cayleigh got the complete princess treatment that night. She was decked out in glittery shoes, a party dress, and a cape to wear around it. She indeed had a corsage to accessories.

Even with all the glitz and excitement, there was still time to honor Cayleigh’s father.

During her special day, Cayleigh took the time to keep in mind her father. He had talked almost bringing her to a daddy-daughter move in the long run, but they never had the time. But, Jillian Hinton, Cayleigh’s mother, says, their young daughter had him with her in spirit.

“He’s here in spirit. I heard Cayleigh talking to him while she was getting ready, and I have no doubt she has him with her tonight.”

The two danced the night away and had a wonderful time.

They danced the whole night at the school gymnasium, and Cayleigh and Sergeant Bierbrodt came away with some very special memories. Since some other military members and firefighters also escorted her to the dance, Cayleigh made sure to dance with every officer who was with her.
