Marine Dad Disguised As Santa, But When He Removes Wig His Son Is Speechless.

It was a heartwarming and emotional reunion for a Virginia family when a Marine came home early for Christmas. Staff Sgt. David Rescott had been serving in Kuwait for the last 8 months and was not due home until January 8th of next year. The Rescott family is used to having their dad gone for the holidays, but this year will be different in the best of ways.


With over a week left before Christmas, a class full of first graders in Mrs. Taylor’s class at Widewater Elementary School in Stafford, VA got a surprise visit from Santa Claus. He came by the class to read a holiday story to them… but that wasn’t his only agenda.

When it was finally Jason Rescott’s turn to sit on Santa’s knee, he got up in front of the class and proclaimed his Christmas wish, “I want an Xbox One for Christmas … I also want my dad.â€

It was then that “Santa” told little Jackson that he just might be able to make his dream come true. Piece by piece, Santa began removing his glasses, hat, hair, eyebrows and beard to reveal his true identity — Jackson’s father, Sgt. Rescott!
