A newly minted officer with the Irving (TX) Police Department was stunned during her swearing in ceremony as her son—a member of the United States Army—appeared at the facility to pin her star on her uniform.

The agency posted a video of the big reveal on Facebook with the caption, "All swearing-in ceremonies are special but every once in a while one tugs at your heart strings a little more than others."

The social media post concluded, "Yesterday, at Officer Benning's swearing-in she was surprised to find out that her son, who has been stationed overseas and has not seen in over two years, would be the one pinning her badge."
