Elder Logan Wood recently returned to his hometown of Muskogee, Oklahoma, after serving a full-time mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Riverside, California.
As with all missionaries, Elder Wood was instructed to take off his official name tag by his stake president after being formally released. The iconic black name tags are worn by all set-apart LDS missionaries to signify their calling. Elder Wood’s mother and father removed the name tags and the tender moment was caught on film and originally posted on the LDS Standing United Facebook page. You can watch it below.
