GOOD NEWS Military Dad Leaves Behind Sweetest 'Deployment Countdown' for Son
Here's sweet story to share as we say thank you on Veterans Day to those who have served our country.
A Virginia father knew he wouldn't be able to kiss his son goodnight for about six months while he was deployed with the Air Force in Kuwait.
So he came up with the next best thing for the little boy to help him through the difficult time.
Steve Dillenburger left 190 Hershey Kisses - the exact number of nights he'd be away - for young Sean.
His wife, Mary Ellen, told WUSA that their son brought the jar with him as they traveled South Carolina, Ohio, Delaware and Maryland.
When there were no Kisses left, on Oct. 24, Sean knew it was time to see dad again.
Watch the feel-good video above, including Steve's emotional return.
