Little boy gets surprise of his life when dad comes home

Sergeant Surprises 5-Year-Old Son After Returning from Afghanistan
Sergeant TJ Musshorn came home to Connecticut and paid a visit to his local YMCA to surprise one special little man in his life.

Musshorn had been deployed in Afghanistan for nearly a year, and it's been especially hard on his 5-year-old son, Jackson.

As Jackson was playing with his pals, he was blindfolded as part of a game. When the blindfold came off, he was looking right at his beloved dad.

WBNS reporters said they don't think little Jackson knew what was coming.

'Jack's dad says using Skype makes being away a little more bearable, but he's been counting down the days to get home,' WBNS reported.

'The army trains your mission first but family is always in the back of your mind,' TJ explained.
