military babyPretty much anybody looks great holding a baby, but there's just something extra special about seeing a man or a woman who's serving our country holding a baby. It makes your heart both swell with pride and melt into a million little pieces all at once. Be it a dad who's seeing his son for the very first time, or a woman caring for a tiny baby girl during a medical examination -- there's nothing quite like it.

So, including the one to the left, here are 7 heart-melting photos of men and women of the military with adorable babies. Everybody needs to see this.
