A soldier returning home from Afghanistan surprised his family, dressed as a polar bear mascot at a local football game.
US Army Specialist Justin May, disguised as the Bracken County High mascot polar bear, shocked his father and brother when he removed the costume head on the field.
The American soldier had just returned home from an 11-month deployment, including nine months in the Middle East, when he decided to make a grand entrance.
His father is an assistant coach for the football team and gave his son a big “bear hug” when he saw his face.
His family members didn’t expect him to make it home until next month.
