WATCH: Military Dad Surprises Children During Their Visit to Santa
An Army National Guardsman who had been away from his family since September for basic training had a special Christmas surprise for his children.
As his three kids were visiting Santa Claus at a Marlborough, Mass., mall, Kyle Shotsberger popped out from behind Santa's chair, as WHDH reported.
Shotsberger has been training at a base in Missouri to be a mechanic. He is expected to be home for several weeks before returning back to training.
"It's nice. It's nice to be home. It's almost a relief from going through what we go through," he said.
Shotsberger's wife, Samantha, works at the mall and was able to coordinate this heartwarming military reunion.
