Boston Bruins Reunite Soldier With Parents In Surprise Ceremony At Center Ice

I love these surprise reunions between returning soldiers and their families.

In honor of Veteran's Day, the Boston Bruins had Darren and Lori Jacobs, the parents of Lt. Charles Jacobs, come to center ice pre-game to drop a ceremonial puck.

Unbeknownst to them, Lt. Jacobs was actually flown home by the Bruins for a surprise reunion.  He had spent the past seven months in Afghanistan with the 182nd Infantry of the Massachusetts Army National Guard.

Grab some kleenex.
