It was a “very cool” weekend for Happening Now host Jon Scott and his family when they welcomed home his son Josh from Afghanistan.

1st Lt. Joshua Scott returned to Fort Riley in Kansas after serving nine months in Afghanistan. Jon shared photos with the reunited family and video of his son’s unit marching into the hangar at Ft. Riley.

The Fox News host said the first meal his son wanted was a steak.

Jon recalled, “He said they had some steaks over in Afghanistan, but they weren’t necessarily high quality.”

He also thanked viewers for their good wishes and prayers, adding, “Not everybody gets to come home, unfortunately, and we remember those families.”
