Soldier Surprises Wife and Son at Anaheim Ducks Game (Video)

soldier surprises wife

These “soldier surprises wife and family” stories never seem to get old. There are a lot of them, but something about a soldier making it home to a family will always be a nice thing to discuss. And when that soldier surprises his wife and child as he does it, that makes it all the better.

Then, put that surprise in a huge public forum, like an Anaheim Ducks game, and you’ve got yourself a nice little news story.

You can probably see where I’m going with this. But in case you can’t:

A soldier, Robert Vandenburg, returning from Afghanistan surprised his wife and met his newborn son for the first time by sneaking up on them at a Ducks game at the Honda Center in Anaheim.

The family thought that they were Skyping with him on the jumbotron, but he was actually in the building, ready to reunite.

Watch the video, rather than have me describe the lovely reunion:

One day, this surprise will give someone a heart attack, and there will be blood on the hands of the people who set this up. But not today. So let’s enjoy it.
