HARTFORD, CONN. - A soldier surprised his son during a summer camp magic show after the little boy tried on his father's military hat.
The boy, Ethan Christensen, was participating in a magic show at a YMCA camp in Connecticut and was told to try on a variety of hats, one of which was his father's, reports ABC News .
The magician handed him the military hat and asked if he had ever seen it before and he said yes. The magician then told him to hand it to the man standing behind Christensen -- where his father was standing.
He turned around to see his dad, Major Timothy Christensen, who had been deployed for more than a year.
Ethan was so excited that he jumped into his dad's arms.
Ethan's sister, Emily, was also surprised by her dad.
