‘Could anything better happen at the holidays?’


Zack and DadAt a concert in Chicago on Sunday, a father of a Marine deployed in Afghanistan, was called up to the stage to hold the American flag.

Little did he know that it was all a setup. His son, Cpl. Zack Mucha, who’s been away from home for about two years, wanted to surprise his dad.

He succeeded. As a singer belts out “I’ll Be Home for Christmas,” Mucha walks on stage. The look on his father’s face is priceless.

You can watch their emotional reunion here.

One member of the audience commented, “Could anything better happen at the holidays than to bring a loved one home?”
