Col. Rob Kiebler returned home to Portland last week, although his son didn’t know about the homecoming in advance. Rob decided to dress up as a Jedi knight and surprise his son during the boy’s birthday party.
Danny was celebrating his birthday with family and friends at the Deschutes Brew Pub in Portland on July 18 when the cast of characters from Star Wars came in to say hello.
“When I pulled the hood back as part of the surprise he didn’t really recognize me. I think he was a little overwhelmed with all the Star Wars characters” Rob said. “I took a minute and said ‘hey, who am I?’ Then it kind of caught him and he gave me a huge hug and he wouldn’t let go. It was a pretty great feeling.”
