Sailor Dad Surprises Cheerleader Daughter

I have to admit, I have a soft spot in my heart for videos of service men and women returning home from deployments into the waiting arms of their families. The long periods of separation are so difficult for all involved, which makes their homecoming celebrations something we--as a grateful nation--can share in their joy. Check out this video of one recent homecoming, where a dad who had been at sea for an extended period surprised his teenaged cheerleader daughter!

Earl Pitts 12/16/13: Santa On The Radar

We're all familiar with the Christmas tradition of the North American Air Defense (NORAD) folks keeping track of Santa's sleigh on its annual trek from the North Pole on Christmas Eve.
