US Navy Airman Patrick Dilley visited the College of Idaho to surprise his parents at a football game. He had graduated from there in 2008 before his deployment to Japan. What made this reunion extra special, however, was that his dad Mike was being honored on the field. Mike had worked as a health and human performance instructor at the college for 23 years and there's no better honor than having Patrick there to celebrate with him. Mike's look of surprise and pure elation at the sight of his son is enough to bring tears to our eyes!
