Eight-month-old baby, Karalaini Rokosuka and her mother Losena Rokosuka were among family members and friends who greeted their loved ones at the Nadi International Airport yesterday.

Her father Private Panapasa Rokosuka returned home with a group of soldiers after their tour of duty at the Golan Heights.

Her mother, Losena, 25, of Natutu, Ba, said her daughter was born when her husband was in the Golan Heights .

“This is the first time for him to see her after he left last July. She was born last December,” Mrs Rokosuka said.

“It’s been one year and a month since he has been away. We are happy that he is home.”

Private Rokosuka, 27, of Tokatoka, Tailevu, has two daughters – Karalaini and her elder sister Sera. They live at the Queen Elizabeth Barracks in Nabua.

“I’m happy that I have reached Fiji in once piece and I’m really happy to meet my family again,” he said.
