Soldier Returns Early From Afghanistan, Surprises Daughters During NFL Game

During Sunday's game between the Giants and the Rams, this soldier's homecoming offered a welcome distraction to the players' antics, as he surprised his daughters in the end-zone, fresh off the plane from Afghanistan.

The soldier, identified by commentators as Col. Brandt Deck, had planned the surprise homecoming with his wife, leaving their two daughters in the dark. Judging by the expression on their faces, it was a more than welcome shock.

Merry Christmas, you guys.
