Military families being reunited with loved ones who've spent time time away serving the country are videos that provide all the feels, and one such special moment was caught on camera at a school in central Minnesota this week. 

Saint Francis Xavier Catholic School in Sartell pulled off a big surprise for a student whose father had spent the last year or so in Kuwait. 

"One of our students was just surprised by his dad, returning from Kuwait for about a year! So exciting!!" said the school in a Facebook video that shows the boy sprinting into his dad's arms. 

Bring Me The News has reached out to the school for more on how they set up the surprise and who the family is.
