When a soldier comes home after a long time away from friends and family, they can’t wait to see them again. But if their loved ones don’t know about the homecoming, they did think it was a great opportunity for a surprise.
For one Marine, all the circumstances were just right for him to surprise his young sons, who were visiting the Medieval Times attraction.
The two boys, who were happy to meet the Green Knight, had no clue their father had stripped himself of his uniform and put on a costume of chain-mail armor, boots and a helmet, making him completely unrecognizable.
All three posed for what seemed to be typical photos.
But the moment he takes off his helmet is the one everyone at the photo shoot waiting for. The boys were confused at first, but once they recognize their dad, they gave him huge hugs.
They had no clue he would be home – they thought he was still in Iraq.
What an amazing surprise for the family. Hopefully, they made the most of their time together at the exciting venue.
These boys hopefully realize that their dad is a real-life knight fighting for a noble cause.
