Reunited

In an instant, it seemed that the classmates, friends, cameras and television crews surrounding him disappeared the moment T.J. Gleason saw his dad, Tim, in the front seat of a minivan as it pulled up outside his school Wednesday. Tim had been serving overseas with the Illinois National Guard since June 2012.

The entire school and several community members gathered as multiple fire trucks, police cars and motorcycles formed a motorcade for Tim Gleason, his wife, and three younger sons, to pull off a surprise for T.J., who stood waiting with his kindergarten class at Corron Elementary School.

T.J. tore away from his class and ran full speed into his dad's arms.

The look of pure joy on both Tim and T.J.'s faces was priceless. Not to mention that it was Tim's birthday. But from the look of the moment, you would think it was T.J.'s birthday too.
