One soldier pulled off the surprise of a lifetime when he chose to give his dad a moment he is sure to never forget. Mason had been deployed for over a year as a MP, thrilling his friends with the news that he would be returning home from deployment a few weeks earlier than expected. However, Mason kept the good news from his family, including his father, eager to break the news in an incredibly epic way: a surprise visit.
Showing up at his dad’s office, he crept around the corner of the building while asking a nearby receptionist to keep her voice low. “Oh my God,” she whispered upon seeing Mason, covering her face to cover her emotion. Asking what his father was up to, she responded, “He’s with the reps. Go ahead,” before encouraging him to knock on the office door.
Mason knocked loudly, as his father’s muffled voice was heard behind the door inquiring as to who had been disrupting the meeting. After a few seconds of no answer to the door, Mason eagerly knocked further, with a much louder intent. His father appeared to respond to the noise, utterly dumfounded to see his son before him. “Mason!” He cried, breaking down into tears as they embraced for a tight hug.
“I can’t believe you,” his father cried, jokingly promising to smack his son’s head for hiding his early return. His father’s rep began to clear the room, chuckling, “This meeting is over. There are more important things going on in this room.” The video revealed that Mason pulled the same surprise on his mother and sister directly after the recorded moment with his dad.
