We’ve all seen some great videos of returning veterans surprising their loved ones - but this is one comes with a big red bow on it.

Veteran Joshua Carr made his return home public with a Facebook video showing his daughter opening a present for her third birthday last September. The gift inside was her dad returning home from Afghanistan.

The video has been featured many places lately, including the “Adopt A VET” Facebook page.

The caption underneath the video says, “#1 Perk of returning from Afghanistan around your 3 year old's birthday.”

Watch the video and see the joy this type of perk can bring.
