Fathers can come in many forms; builders, buddies, coaches, teachers and fixers of things that break around the house.

But when they're serving their country in the military, and deployed half way around the world, they become something else: missed.

So as veterans, when we see adorable kids reuniting with their dads after many missing them months on end, we can't help but get a little teary-eyed ourselves. So, grab some tissues and and watch these incredibly heartwarming videos:

1. We start off easy, with a little guy who was not quite ready to wake up.

2. A school lunch this boy will never forget.

3. At first it was hard for her to see how incredible this game was going to be.

4. For these kids, this was the best basketball game ever.

5. This girl may never throw a pitch this good again.

6. How do you spell "surprise!"

7. A cheerleader really gets something to cheer about.


To all veteran and active duty dads,  Happy Fathers Day!
