Military Son Surprises Dad at 70th Birthday Party

March 05, 2012

“Rich Sr.’s surprise 70th birthday party took a playful turn when a large gorilla turned up at the front door with a balloon. Little did he know that inside that gorilla suit was his son, Rich. Jr. – a lieutenant in the U.S. Air Force. A special pre-taped message from his son brought tears – but nothing compared to the tears that flowed when the pre-taped message ended, and his son revealed himself in-person. Not a dry eye in the house.”


Military Dad, Home From Iraq, Surprises Son at School

March 01, 2012

“This is a video of my son seeing his daddy for the first time after his deployment. This video was shot on Dec 12, 2011. My son, Luke, had no idea we were surprising him that day. He has high-functioning autism, so his display of emotion meant that much more. I don’t know how he could’ve handled being surprised by his dad in front of a school or classroom full of people. It made it so much sweeter to me to just see him and his daddy. (You can hear me getting choked up on the tape too!)”
