Our military forces have one of the most dangerous jobs in the world. They need to be physically and mentally prepared for anything anywhere, and their training is really exhausting. Just doing their job is incredibly demanding.
But as demanding as that is, being away from your loved ones just might be even tougher–and not only for the service members themselves but for their family and friends as well. It’s a tremendous sacrifice for all involved.
The dad in the video below misses his Navy son with all his heart. This man was celebrating his 50th birthday bash, but one important person was missing from the room. His sailor son is deployed and away on sea duty. But he did get to watch a video message by his little boy. He is overcome with both happiness and sadness when he sees him onscreen.
But then he gets an even bigger surprise. I couldn’t control my tears! Watch the video below and please leave us a Facebook comment to let us know what you thought!
