Returning Soldier Gives His Daughters The Surprise Of A Lifetime

Army Staff Sergeant Ryan Pierce has been away from his family, home, and friends for an entire year, but when he finally made the trip home he was determined to let his daughters get the biggest and best surprise he could possibly give to them: himself.

The 14-year-old and 11-year-old girls were just having a regular day at school, with the minor exception of an interview from a news crew about parents who are overseas at war. In response to the question “do you miss your dad?” the eldest daughter responded tearfully with “well, on a scale of 1 to 10, it would probably be like, 50.”

Obviously with so much time spent overseas, Pierce’s family missed him dearly. So when he decided to surprise them, they reaction was absolutely priceless.

Check out the video below to learn more about their story and to see one of the most heartwarming homecomings ever!
