For graduating senior Tyler Solomon, getting his diploma wouldn’t end up being the highlight of his day. Reuniting with his dad would be. 

The Marshfield High School senior in Massachusetts was left stunned and overcome with emotion when he went to accept his diploma and was surprised by his U.S. Army father, who has been overseas in Kosovo since January on his fifth deployment for a year. 

Tyler wasn’t alone in his surprise. No one in the Solomon family new the incredible homecoming was going to happen, making Graduation Day even more special.

The heartwarming reunion made for a ceremony that neither students nor staff at the school will ever forget.
