Army Captain Surprises Daughter In Front Of Crowd Of Thousands At Wisconsin Badgers Game (VIDEO)

When Army Capt. Jane Renee "JR" Lund surprised her 13-year-old daughter, Bella, at a Wisconsin Badgers football game on Saturday, thousands of hearts melted simultaneously in the stands. Yet no one was more touched than Bella, who didn't expect to see her mother until October.

JR, a veterinarian and University of Wisconsin graduate, had been serving a six-month tour in southern Afghanistan, but she returned home a little early to reunite with her daughter and create a great moment for the 80,000 fans at the game.
