Navy Dad Makes Surprise Reunion With 4-Year-Old Son At P-Bruins Game (Video)

Intermission hockey games involving kids are great. So are military family reunions. When the two come together, they form a special, emotional mix.

Sunday’s AHL game between the Providence Bruins and Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins featured both, WPRI’s Yianni Kourakis reported.

U.S. Navy officer Christopher Oliver reunited with his 4-year-old son, Gunner, on the ice at the Dunkin’ Donuts Center in Providence, R.I. Gunner’s reaction suggests he didn’t expect to see his dad, who had returned home after months serving in the Persian Gulf.

Onlookers near and far enjoyed Oliver’s homecoming, and the the P-Bruins went on to win 3-2.
