A pair of young girls got the surprise of their lives when firefighters showed up to their family home over the Easter break.
Family members planned the surprise reveal of Tawny and Brea's father, Sergeant 1st Class Terry Gottke, who just returned from a one-year military deployment in Afghanistan.
As a fire truck made its way down their street, onlookers were asking if the girls had any hand in lighting fires that day -- to which the aspiring firefighters simply laughed along with. But as one of the first responders got off the truck and removed his gear they quickly noticed it was their daddy!
Both of the young girls were speechless and neither was ready to stop hugging their hero who has just come home for good!
