Do you love (and by "love," I mean "cry unashamedly with joy") the "soldier surprises family by returning home at a public event" videos? How about when the video is local?
WQAD 8 reports that a soldier surprised his kids by returning home during a Quad Cities River Bandits baseball game:
The kids thought they were playing musical chairs during the game's eighth inning. But instead their dad, U.S. Army specialist Jake Conger, came running onto the ballfield.
They hadn't seen each other in 11 months.
See the video here. Oh - bring the tissues!
