Grab the tissues. You'll need them after watching a New York soldier surprise his 7 year old daughter in school.

Lieutenant Colonel Jean-Paul Plamondon wasn't expected home from Kuwait for another 3 weeks. Little did his daughter Natalie know, he was home early.

Plamondon walked into Okte Elementary School in Clifton Park where Natalie was enjoying story time. The story was quickly forgotten as she ran into her dad's arms in tears. "Was it a good surprise?" he asked. "Better than anything in the world," replied Natalie.

We think so too Natalie.
