Parents Of Deployed Soldier Get A Surprise At Last Saturday’s Sabre’s Game [Video]

Last Saturday night the Buffalo Sabres took on the Boston Bruins in Boston.  It was a game that turned out to be a disaster for the Sabres.  They lost the game and their starting goaltender ended up with a concussion after a controversial hit.  But, something special happened that night too.

It was veteran’s day weekend and the Bruins were honoring Daron and Lori Jacobs, parents of Lt. Charlie Jacobs who has been deployed in Iraq for the past 7 months.

Little did they know that he was actually there that night to help them with the ceremonial puck drop.

“I thought we were just out there to be suppporting family members, you know?” Daron Jacobs said. “I didn’t think he’d be showing up — didn’t think about it. And then all of a sudden, the crowd got a ittle bit louder, and I’m trying to look up at the Jumbotron — I see nothing, but I thought, `What’s going on?’ and I listened to the announcement, and they said they had someone who wanted to help us drop the puck.”

I cannot imagine how hard it is to be a soldier.  I cannot also imagine how hard it is to be the parent of a soldier.  The waiting to find out when you’re going to see or hear from them again.  The wondering of how they’re doing.  Then to see this.  They totally deserve this moment.
