An American soldier on leave from Germany makes a surprise visit to his father’s 67th birthday party.
When Courtney Adams realized her husband, Chris, a Marine Corps private first class stationed in Germany, would be home for his dad’s birthday, she threw together a surprise party. Joe Adams was turning 67 and had no idea his son would be there to help him celebrate.
Courtney contacted her local Texas Roadhouse restaurant in Orange Park, Florida, to request a table for 12 for the big event. And when the family came together for the surprise party, the restaurant went all out - they got a birthday cake, a homecoming cake, and comped the whole bill for the dinner!
The family reunion and birthday party was a huge success. The restaurant helped make it special and Joe’s birthday celebration was so much better after getting to hug his son again. The Adams family say it “was the best night ever.”

A homeless man is being praised for saving a life when he performed CPR on a man who crashed his truck after having a heart attack.
James Popcock had been living right off the side of the highway in Williston, Vermont, and when he witnessed a serious accident, he jumped into action to help save the man who was driving. Truck driver Paul Bristol had a serious heart attack behind the wheel, causing him to veer into the other lane and “bunny hop” along the guardrail before he stopped.
When Popcock found Bristol, he was breathless and had no pulse, so he started CPR, which he learned as a Boy Scout and used when he used to be a firefighter and EMT. The homeless man saved the trucker, who later received six stents in his blocked arteries.
The two men have become friends and keep in touch, Bristol even came to see Popcock get an award for saving him. To thank him, Bristol bought Popcock a new pillow and other supplies for his camp. And a local resident, Lynnea Nichols, has set up a GoFundMe page to raise money to get Popcock a place to live. Now that is GOOD news!
