Our military are not only an important asset to our country, but they're especially important to the people closest to them--their families. Today we celebrate Veterans Day in remembrance of those who have fought in wars in the past and those brave men and women who are overseas currently defending our country.

Their homecomings in particular tend to be really moving. One video that made my heart melt was of Navy Reservist, Justin Whyte. He surprised his 5-year-old son, Aiden upon his homecoming by showing up dressed as Darth Vader to his Star Wars themed birthday party. If that's not an amazing birthday surprise, I don't know what is!

According to Whyte's wife, he wasn't even supposed to be home at the time, but the adults decided to keep his homecoming a secret until the big day. On Aiden's birthday, all the kids were dressed as their favorite Star Wars characters, but little did he know that his dad was the man behind the Darth Vader mask.
