James Brennan of Philadelphia, Penn. kneels down to get video footage of his 10-month-old granddaughter Christina, who just got off the plane with dad Christopher on a military charter flight at BWI Thurgood Marshall Airport on Friday, Dec. 28, 2012. This was Brennan's first time seeing his granddaughter. She was one of about 300 people on the charter flight, which brought troops and military contractors back to the United States. (Barbara L.
