Military Father Surprises Daughter at College Graduation

After missing his daughter’s high school and undergraduate graduation, U.S. Navy Petty Officer 2nd Class Douglas Hernandez surprised his daughter Pamela on stage for her master’s degree ceremony.

Hernandez traveled all the way from Dubai to watch his daughter graduate from University Nevada Las Vegas, Fox 5 reported.

The school faculty helped keep Hernandez’s surprise under wraps.

The 30 hours of travel time was worth it for Hernandez to see the look on his daughter’s face.

“I had no idea what was going on. I thought he would be on a virtual screen. I did not know he would be in person,” she said.

You can watch the video here. The father and daughter can be seen sharing a hug on stage to the cheers of the crowd.
