A soldier deployed for more than a year surprised his son at his summer camp performance.
According to ABC News, Ethan Christensen was on stage as part of a magic routine when the show took an unexpected twist for the nine-year-old.
During the act, Christensen was given a military cap to put on before he was asked to give it to the magician’s assistant.
Upon turning to look at the assistant, Christensen realized it was his father, Major Timothy Christensen, and leapt into his arms.
Major Christensen has served more than a year in Afghanistan.
He also surprised his daughter, Emily, in a similar way.
