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!

CLICK HERE to see the video. This just might make you want to hug your computer; but better yet, just thank the next veteran you see!

God bless this sailor, and his family!
