Air Force Captain Manny Lamson from Abilene was finally returning home after spending six months in Qatar. He wanted to surprise his 3-year-old son, Connor, after he returned home.
Lamson, a weapons system officer, is part of a squadron based out of the city’s Dyess Air Force Base, and decided to take help from the fire department to make his homecoming extra special.
Connor, his little son, is a firefighter fanatic, and was over the moon when he saw emergency responders pulled up to his home in a large red truck. The toddler, did not know that his dad, Lamson was home, he stood watching as his dad in full gear, climbed out of the truck to greet him.
The cute clip posted to the Abilene Fire Department’s Facebook page, shows Lamson kneeling down and pulling off his mask, revealing himself to Connor, who then raced to embrace him. It was a sight to behold when the father and son reunion ended in lots of hugs and high emotions.
