Crystal Dole, her daughter, and newborn son were invited to attend a Blackhawks game Saturday night. Mom had no idea that her husband, Sergeant Dale Dick who had been deployed with the National Guard in Afghanistan for nine months, would be at that game too.
To make his homecoming special for his family, the Sgt. stood next to singer Jim Cornelison during the national anthem as a surprise. The whole family hugged afterwards outside the arena, and the moment was particularly touching as it was Sgt. Dick's first time meeting his baby boy.
