Jacob Baird's dad is serving our country in Afganistan so he was unable to see his son (until now, thanks to Vimeo) run not one but two "mini-laps" around for his father while wearing his special uniform and hat.

Jacob goes to The Little Light House, a Christian developmental center in Tulsa, Oklahoma, that serves children like Jacob with special needs.

I shot the event using a Sony HDR-FX7 HDV camera and edited this brief video clip on Sony Vegas Pro 8.0c.

On behalf of all Americans I would like to pass along my heartfelt thanks and gratitude to Jacob's dad and others who put their lives on the line for the freedom so many take for granted. We pray for your safe return.
