Master Sergeant Joseph Martel returned from a deployment to Afghanistan a month early. While his wife was aware of his early arrival, his high-school-age son was not—and he treated him to the surprise of a lifetime.

Dressed as a player on the opposing team's sideline, MSGT Martel waited until a mid-game sportsmanship conference with the other team to reveal himself to his son. What happens next is nothing short of amazing.

Don't even bother trying to hold it in. Cry along with the rest of us, we won't judge.
