Soldier Surprises His 3 Children Just in Time for Christmas 2011

April 26, 2012

“My husband had been stationed in Afghanistan since July of 2011. He is a member of the Army Reserve as well as a police officer for Tampa Police Department. His leave was right before last Christmas and the kids had no idea he was coming home. My son would sit in his bed at night and cry about how he just wanted daddy to be home for Christmas… and it broke my heart not to be able to tell him, but the surprise was well worth it! We had a great time, and daddy will be home for good this July!”
