A Virginia father knew he wouldn’t be able to kiss his son goodnight for about six months while he was deployed with the Air Force in Kuwait. So he came up with the next best thing for the little boy to help him through the difficult time. Steve Dillenburger left 190 Hershey Kisses – the exact number of nights he’d be away – for young Sean. His wife, Mary Ellen, told WUSA that their son brought the jar with him as they traveled South Carolina, Ohio, Delaware and Maryland.
