    My brother is in the Army and deployed so we are spending the holidays with his family. Yesterday we took the kids to see Santa and the only thing my 6 yearold daughter asked for is for her uncle to be home for Christmas. Well, today I found out he is landing tonight for his R&R. I cant wait to see the look on my daughters face when she see him tomorrow morning.

    I have no Idea what the point of this post is, I just wanted to share something happy with you assholes.

    Very cool. Best wishes to your family this season.

    Good things happen to good people.

    Want another one?

    A guy who got laid off asked for a little help winning a
    contest so he could treat his wife to dinner this season.

    You obnoxious bastards helped him win by a 2-1 margin.
    Merry Christmas to all and fuck you guys for actually being nice. ;)

    This too. Thanks to him and all his fellow soldiers. I wish I could shake every one of their hands.

    I hope you didn't tell her and ruin the surprise. Make him wear a Santa suit for the big reveal.

    Oooh, don't forget to take video of the first time she sees him. Then post it on youtube and reddit and let the love roll in.

    Good story. I enjoy reading 1 nice story for the Holidays, and this qualifies.

    I second the 'Update Needed' thought. Can do without the video, as that's already a show I can't watch.

    This is one of those things that I would love to see the video. Great story, I hope that soon enough he is able to return home for good to his family.

    Update..

    He finally landed yesterday, Saturday. We told the kids that Santa needed to see them again. They were freaked out wondering what they did to make Santa request their presence. We went to the PX to the same Santa we saw earlier in the week. Santa told the kids he had an early suprise and my brother walked out. The kids were crying, I was crying, shit, even Santa was crying. We atracted quite the crowd and there wasnt a dry eye in the place. I will upload video as soon as I figure out how.

    Merry Christmas

    That's a great Christmas story. I dread the video. Doubt I can watch it. Seen all sorts of awful things (Bloodshows anyone?) but something about Troops getting back to their Families.

    I don't think there is a dry eye on Wackbag of anyone who reads this post.

    Such a great story for the holidays.
