In this heartwarming video, watch as a soldier on an unexpected visit home from Kuwait surprises his father-in-law.

The soldier's wife, Cari S., captured the tearful reunion on camera and posted it on the Welcome Home Blog.

"My big, tough Daddy turns into a big ole' softy when it comes to his kids, and he is so proud of his son-in-law. As you can see, he is on a business call and walks right by my husband when he comes in. I love his reaction," she wrote.

The clip -- which has earned over 310,000 views since it was uploaded on May 2 -- shows the moment when Cari's dad breaks down in tears at the sight of his beloved son-in-law.

According to the Daily Mail, viewers flooded the blog with messages for the soldier and his family.

"Thank you so much for sharing this video and for sharing your husband with us. Your father's reaction is so heartfelt. I was bawling! Thank you sir for your service and your sacrifices," said one commenter.

The soldier has since returned overseas but his wife, Cari, said on the Welcome Home blog that she "can't wait until he's home for good".
