10 Amazing Military Father-Daughter Surprise Reunions

iStock_000016272084XSmall1-2Military-father-and-daughter-hugging
Like so many girls her age, my little sweetheart is over-the-moon excited about Valentine’s Day. What could be more thrilling for a four-year-old than a WHOLE ENTIRE DAY dedicated to chocolate candy, the color pink, and love? And who is her first love? Daddy, of course. Talking to her about how her father is her Valentine got me thinking about little girls that don’t get to spend Valentine’s Day with their dads, and that led me to imagining the sadness of children separated from their folks while they are serving our country overseas. I went to find this one amazing video I had previously seen where a father surprises his daughter in school, and then of course I started blubbering and watched reunion after reunion until felt my heart might explode. Oh jeez, excuse me, I’ll just be here with my tissues. God bless and godspeed to all of our dads and moms that can’t be with their little Valentines this year. Thank you for everything you’ve done for us, and I hope that soon your family can have a reunion like these 10 fathers and daughters did…
