U.S. Navy sailor Chris Daugherty was due to deploy in January 2016. It wouldn’t be his first tour abroad. Nor would it be the first time he’d have to spend a prolonged period away from his family. Daugherty was initially expecting to be at sea for five months.
However, some time after setting sail, the Navy man would learn that his deployment would actually end up lasting longer than he’d first thought, but that wasn’t the only unexpected twist heading his way. Little did Chris know at the time, but he’d eventually come home to the shock of his life.
