United States Army Reserves Captain Keith Robinson had been deployed in Afghanistan for the last six months, but this week he surprised his 22-year-old daughter Ruby at her college graduation at Columbia University.

Two weeks earlier, Capt. Robinson told his daughter he most likely would not be able to attend her graduation.

But a sudden change of plans and many hours of flying, he made it to New York City just in time to surprise an unsuspecting Ruby on stage as she walked to receive her diploma.

“Congratulations, young lady. I’m so proud of you,” he said to his daughter as she started to cry.
