Though Anderson Cooper’s Anderson Live has since been canceled, this was one of the best moments. Army Sergeant First Class Lucas Gratz had been deployed to Afghanistan, and his family was on the show, sending a message to him about how much they loved him. When he emerged from backstage with a bouquet of roses for his wife (and plenty of hugs for his children!) there wasn’t a dry eye in the place. What an incredible gift for Thanksgiving!
Take a look at this heartwarming reunion!
