Soldier Surprises Son From Inside Giant Present

An excited toddler jumped for joy when he opened a giant present to discover his military dad, who had been serving overseas for more than 11 months, almost half the youngster's life. As the box was lifted and two-year-old Kayden Schuler caught a glimpse of his father, Sergeant Cody Schuler of the U.S. Army, he immediately began to jump up and down on the spot with delight. Following the initial excitement, Kayden then headed over to his father, 37, for a long-awaited hug, which came at the end of a 315-day separation for the pair. Cody left on June 24, 2021, for Kuwait – the family's second deployment, but the first with a child.
