Last night, Sunday Nov. 11th, @ 6:30pm, David Muir was reporting the news, and I'd just seen the video of Petty Officer Ellis surprising his son on my local ABC station WLOS13 so I practically JUMPED out of my WHEELCHAIR when David Muir said; 'And we'd like to share with you, this touching video, of Petty Officer James Ellis, of Asheville, North Carolina, surprising his son as he comes home from Afghanistan. The video is from our sister station WLOS13...' I was SOOOOOOOO EXCITED!!
