After Dierks Bentley performed at Stagecoach on Friday, he made his way north to Fresno to continue his What The Hell Tour at Save Mart Center in Fresno, where he helped a U.S. soldier surprise his family with his return after being gone for almost a year.

Sgt. Steven Mendez surprised his two sons backstage during a meet n greet with Dierks, by nonchalantly walking in during the meet n greet.  In the video posted below, you can see his two sons’ surprised and emotional reaction.

During Dierks’ show that evening, Dierks’ brought out the entire Mendez family while he performed “Home” and the audience chanted in unison, “U.S.A.!”

It was truly a wonderful moment caught on camera.
