Grab the tissues, because this video is bound to hit you hard. We always love a good military homecoming, but the ones that are surprises are just the best. At Fremont Elementary School's annual Veteran's Day assembly, a special guest arrived. Six-year-old Colton hadn't seen his dad, Navy First Class Petty Officer William Mayes, in seven months. Their reunion is so sweet and touching that it's bringing tears to our eyes, just like father and son.
