The Anaheim Ducks decided to help out some fans before the holiday by reuniting Sergeant First Class Robert Vandenberg Jr. with his wife and two children, including a newborn son he had not yet met.

Patricia Vandenberg was told she would be Skyping with her husband via the arena's Jumbotron, and she looks fairly heartbroken when the connection fails, only to turn around to see her husband walking down the stairs to greet her.

Surprise homecoming videos are always great, but this is a particularly well-executed one by the Ducks.
