The description of the video reads, "#1 Perk of returning from Afghanistan around your 3 year old's birthday."

The suspension builds in the video as the little girl takes time to carefully unwrap each strip of paper covering the larger-than-life box.

When the paper is finally all off, she reaches open the flaps. Her dad springs up and yells, 'Happy Birthday!'

The little girl laughs and giggles and covers her mouth with her hands in disbelief before running into her dad's arms.
