Tanner Buttke just returned from a 12 month deployment with the U.S. Army, but he decided to keep his homecoming a secret so he could surprise his Dad at the Janesville business where they both work.

I love watching homecoming videos like this. To see the burst of emotion people have when their loved one returns home safely is not only heartwarming, but it's a reminder of just how much military families sacrifice too when someone bravely serves our country.

Thank you, Tanner for your service. Also, thank you to Vogel Bros. Building Company in Janesville for capturing and sharing this beautiful moment for us all to see.


Welcome home, Tanner!
