Soldier disguised as polar bear mascot surprises brother and dad at HS football game (VIDEO)

A soldier — who just spent nine months in Afghanistan — returned to his hometown and surprised his father and brother at at a high school football game by disguising himself as the Kentucky team's mascot.

WKYT-TV reports that Specialist Justin May put on the polar bear costume before a game featuring the Bracken County High School football team Friday night in Brooksville.

May, who also was wearing combat boots, was standing feet from his brother Ryan, a football player on the team, and his father Ronald, a team assistant coach, during the coin toss.

After the coin toss, May took off the mascot's head and turned to his father, hugging him. His brother ran up to them and joined the hug.

Ronald May says he is glad to see his son home safe. Justin May — who  had been gone a total of 11 months — said his mom masterminded the whole surprise.

Just a cold weather mascot with a heartwarming story.
