Dad Aged 70 Leaps Fence To Reunite With Military Son

A 70-year-old dad leaps over a porch fence like it was nothing and heads straight into the arms of his military son who surprised him with a birthday visit after two years apart. Charles Huddleston showed athleticism younger than his years as he emotionally reunited with his son, Jarius Huddleston, 21, in Decatur-Conehatta, Mississippi. Jarius and his father are extremely close, talking over the phone every day since Jarius headed off with the U.S. Army roughly two years ago. The 21-year-old is currently based in Fort Lewis, Washington, and due to life circumstances and the pandemic he had not been able to visit his parents for some time. But on June 20, Jarius planned a visit to see Charles, as he wanted to do something special for his father's 70th birthday and Father's Day. After surprising his dad, Jarius then reunited with his other family members, most of whom also knew nothing about his visit. Jarius' sister, Pam, just so happened to capture the surprise on video, and his wife Jo An later shared the clip online where it quickly went viral. Many of the comments, Jo An said, showed appreciation for Charles' acrobatic jump. Charles' dream for his 70th birthday was to have someone to go fishing with and following Jarius's surprise the father and son duo headed out and caught three fish.
