WESTLAKE, Ohio - Captain America, the Hulk, Superwoman and others reunite to welcome a soldier home making the reunion with his family extra special.
"I’m really excited to be home," said Jason Dancy.
Dancy, a patrolman for the Westlake Police Department, has been away from his job and family for eight months while serving in Afghanistan. Jason's wife Jill has a special way to help his three small sons cope with the absence.
"This little guy here, he just loves superheroes and both of them they just think the world of daddy and what he's been doing," said Jill Dancy.
"He would always say 'daddy's a superhero cause he fights bad guys'," said Jason Dancy.
Six superheroes came to help make this reunion one not soon forgotten. Nate Dancy fist bumps with Captain America, Ryan is hoisted up by the Hulk all while Jackson hides behind his mom. The superheroes kept the boys occupied while dad slipped out from hiding to surprise Nate.
"Daddy! I missed you,” said Nate.
“I don't want you to go again," said Jackson.
When asked who his all-time favorite superhero is, Nate answered "daddy."
"To come back and hear that I guess it kind of validates what we are doing and what kind of example we're trying to give our kids," said Jason Dancy.
Jason's immediate plans were to get out of his uniform and go out to eat. The family was treated to a dinner in Tremont.
Jacob plans to resume working for the Westlake Police Department on the first of November.
