This story made me cry happy tears

Click on this link from FoxNews. It's about a surprise that the Padres did for one of our military families in San Diego. First of all I am so proud of my local baseball team for doing this and second of all am so thankful for the service this man (and all the other service men and women) did for our country.

Go read the story and watch the video then tell me what your thoughts are...

Wow--what an awesome surprise. The kids looked like they could hardly believe it. I can't imagine having a husband/dad in the military. Yay for feel good stories!

That is great! The daughter just wanting to hold her dad had me in tears. I agree w/bythelbs I can't imagine how it would be to have someone very close to me in the military. I am so greatful for their service!

That is awesome!! What a great clip :) I was glad to read that the mom knew about it before hand... I was kinda surprised at her reaction! But then when I found out she knew he would be there, it made more sense to me :)

Melissa, that part about the wife knowing wasn't there when I read the article. I was a little surprised by her reaction too but now I understand.
