Returning soldier surprises ‘little buddy’

pickettArmy Staff Sgt. Brandon Pickett got home last week from nine months in Afghanistan intending to sneak up behind his 9-year-old and toss him a football.

“I wanted to make it a big deal for him. He’s my little buddy,” Pickett says. “I couldn’t wait to see his expression.”

When Pickett got to the field in Lawrenceville, Ill., Good Morning America reports, his son, Jayce, spotted him right away and burst into tears.

The reunion was caught on camera and posted on WelcomeHomeBlog.
