Air Force Dad Dresses as Jedi Knight to Surprise Son in Heartwarming, Awesome Homecoming (VIDEO)


The other-worldly gang looks on at the sweet reunion

I’m so not even into Star Wars. Just not my thing. And yet I was moved to tears by the sight of Chewbacca, Princess Leia and the gang, but one Jedi Knight in particular, in a video I just watched.

Col. Rob Kiebler of the US Air Force left his wife and young son Danny in Portland, Oregon, 14 months ago for training and a tour of duty in Afghanistan. Upon his return, Col. Kiebler decided to combine Danny’s love for Star Wars and his love for his dad in an amazing and touching surprise homecoming.

I still don’t like Star Wars, but I positively adore what this dad did to delight his son upon his return home after a long absence. May the force continue to be with their very sweet family.
