 For Fathers Day, the IDF website put up a touching video of a surprise visit by a soldier's parents to his swearing in ceremony.

The soldier is identified as “former Paratrooper, Sam Sank.” He was surprised by his parents on the day of Sam's swearing in ceremony in 2010.

"It was the proudest day for both my parents and myself...we are blessed to have had this day together and now it serves as a memory and dedication to my father. Seeing me as a soldier was his greatest joy," Sam said.

Sam's father suffered from Multiple Sclerosis. He passed away eight months ago today.
