Army Sgt. First Class Eric Pazz was riding on the “Canines of Courage” float sponsored by Natural Balance Pet Foods Tuesday when he was reunited with his wife Miriam and four-year-old son, Eric Jr. Both were watching the parade from the grandstands after winning seats. They were under the impression that 32-year-old Pazz, who was deployed, was still in Afghanistan. Video of the parade shows the heartwarming scene as Eric Jr. runs toward his father and the announcer says, “he sees Daddy. he had no idea.” After the reunion, his family joined him on the float for the remainder of the parade.
