Just when you think you've seen the best video of a returning soldier surprising his family another one comes along to remind you that you definitely haven't.

Third grader Joshua Bass, of Durham, N.C. was getting his school picture taken recently when his dad, Corporal James Bass, photobombed him to let him know he's back.

James had been stationed in Kuwait for about a year and Joshua had no clue his dad was coming home.

After the photographer snapped the picture he showed it to Joshua, who noticed, "Hey, that's my dad standing behind me." When he turned around, he was thrilled to discover his father in the flesh and they shared a hug that will definitely put your ability to hold back the tears to the test.
