Sailor Surprises His Son

Before you play this video, have a tissue handy.

I know first-hand how that little boy felt. The relief that he's home, that he didn't die in an ill-advised pissing contest.

I was a six-year-old with a father at war. It was a long time ago, but watching this makes all those long-ago emotions raw and fresh again.

Bring them all home. Now.

Wow, I should have taken your advice and gotten that tissue. Great video.

When I returned from Iraq, my Mom reacted much the same way. I'm glad his dad made it home.

I'm glad you made it home too, Tim. Welcome back.

Are you home to stay, or subject to recall?

Here is hoping it's the former...
