Dad Holds Phone Up For Selfie When Family Starts Screaming Seeing Someone In Backseat

Serving in the Armed Forces isn't just a sacrifice for the serviceman or woman - it takes something from their families as well. Birthdays come and go without a call, celebrations pass with an empty seat at the dinner table and a hole in your heart forms - one that can't be filled with anything but their smile.

Lance Corporal Rowan Richter knew he wanted to serve our country from the time he could enlist. The thought of protecting his family while also participating in some of the most dangerous, secretive missions in the world was more than appealing for the brave teenager.

Months passed as Rowan trained, deployed and served - most of the time the update Rowan's parents got was a brief phone call when he had time. It was fair to say they missed their son more than anything!

Sensing his parents' nervousness Rowan planned a beautiful surprise visit with the help of his father! The moment Mom understood who was lurking n the back of their selfie is something he'll remember for the rest of his life. Take a peek at Lance Corporal Richter's big surprise below!
