Soldier, Home for R&R, Surprises His Kids for Christmas 2011

“My husband had been deployed for 8 months. All my kids wanted for Christmas was their dad to come home. We knew he would get his R&R around Christmas and kept it a surprise. On Dec 23, 2011 I told them I was going to the dentist when really I went to the airport to pick up their dad. They were playing in the basement when we got home so I called them up and told them I had a surprise for them. Their reaction is priceless, and my son said it perfectly… ‘Best Christmas present EVER!!’ My husband has since returned for the rest of his deployment, but I think they will ALWAYS remember this Christmas.”
