One dad was overcome with emotion when what he expected to be a mere birthday video from his son stationed overseas quickly transitioned into a personal encounter that had this father in tears. Surrounded by friends and family, the proud dad of a sailor began to tear up as a video previously recorded by his son filled the screen before him.
“Hey, Dad. It’s me, over here in good ole Bahrain,” his son softly spoke, eliciting tears from viewers in the room. After apologizing for his absence and wishing his dad a very happy 50th birthday, he ordered, “Do me a favor, suck it up, princess.” The audience chuckled at the lighthearted jokes, although instantly cheering as a woman told the emotional birthday boy, “Now turn around and give your son a hug.”
The son had snuck into the packed room to make his surprise entrance, sending this dad into a tidal wave of emotions as he stood to his feet and hugged his formerly deployed son. The two shared a long embrace filled with tears and gratitude for the reuniting moment they had been awaiting. As they enjoyed their time as a family, Toby Keith’s patriotic hit “Courtesy of the Red, White and Blue” began to subtly play in the far corner of the venue, giving the encounter an extra dose of all American power.
