The North Carolina 8-year-old was dressed in his best and looking to impress. He sat in the chair and posed for his picture. Then got a look at his photo and saw he was photobombed.
Joshua was shocked to see it was his father, Corporal James Bass, who had been deployed for months in Kuwait.
The 3rd grader quickly ran up and gave his dad a big hug.
Corporal Bass is temporarily home in Durham on leave.
