US Army Blackhawk Pilot Surprises Daughter at Airport

January 16, 2012

“My daughter is about two in this video. She was the happiest little girl in the world too see her daddy, Randy, out of Ft. Lewis, Washington. It had been 6 months since she had last seen him. He was only home for two weeks, but it was well worth having him home for a little bit!! He is currently stationed in Kuwait.”

U.S. Airman, Home From Afghanistan, Surprises His Three Daughters

January 13, 2012

“I love these videos! Thank you so much for posting them! I could watch them 24/7! I want to submit our video when my husband came back from Afghanistan last year and surprised our 3 daughters, ages 4, 5, and 6.I had arranged for my them to spend 2 days with a friend, so my husband and I could have some ‘alone’ time. After a few hours, neither one of us could stand that our kids were not there. So, I got my girlfriend to bring them home, telling them my ‘trip’ was cancelled. This is the video of them unpacking all their stuff back into their drawers, only to have their daddy surprise them! It was the best moment of my life!”
