The day that a serviceman returns home from a long deployment is usually a highly emotional scene for all concerned. And Californian sailor Chris Daugherty can certainly attest to that, especially after being greeted by his family and friends on his return from duty in June 2017. Indeed, the naval officer had not been on the pierhead in San Diego very long before he discovered that his wife, Natasha, had been keeping a life-changing secret from him while he was off shore.
Chris, 28, and Natasha, 29, are residents of Temecula, just north of San Diego, CA. As of June 2017, the Daughertys had three children together – a son of ten, and two girls, one four-year-old and an 18-month-old toddler. But, unfortunately, Chris’ role as a petty officer in the U.S. Navy inevitably takes him away from the family home from time to time. After all, the head of the household serves as a cryptologic technician. This is an important and valuable position which involves analyzing encrypted communiques and deciphering data in other languages.
