This Boy Leads The Class In The National Anthem. What Happens Next Brought Me To Tears.

Christopher Bratic proudly sported his Army t-shirt to Mason Elementary’s End of Year celebration Thursday. He wore his Army fatigues earlier this week to honor his Army dad, whose return he’s eagerly awaiting.

Dad told him he’d be stateside later this month, but little does Christopher know a big reveal is in the works.

After 11 months training the Afghan national police, Staff Sgt. Luis Bratic can’t believe he’s in the same building as Chris.

“I just want to grab him,” Bratic said, wondering how Chris – the little goofball – will react when he sees his father.

“He’s either going to do a fake faint on the floor, or he’s going to run away,” Bratic said.

After singing with his classmates, Chris led them in the Pledge of Allegiance.

Then, from behind the curtain, out of the crowd, stepped out a familiar face.

Staff Sgt. Bratic joined the recitation before picking Chris up into a warm embrace.
