A Marine spent his 10 days of pre-deployment with his 3-year-old son celebrating the holidays he would miss while away from home.
Staff Sgt. John York kicked off the celebrations by taking his little boy Bryson door-to-door to trick or treat for Halloween. York’s wife Priscilla told ABC News that he brought candy to the neighbors so they could be prepared when Bryson showed up in costume.
York also helped Bryson blow out candles on a birthday cake and gave him the bike he’d always wanted to celebrate his fourth birthday weeks ahead of time. He even brought in Santa to place wrapped presents under a Christmas tree.
“He just came home from work and said, ‘I have an idea of what I want to do when I have the 10 days of pre-deployment leave. I really want to do all the holidays, all his favorite holidays that I’m going to miss,’” Priscilla said.
