Dreams come true for veterans

VINELAND, N.J. - October 28, 2010

It was truly an emotional day as war veterans like David Moon, a retiree of the U.S. Airforce, saw their dreams come true at the New Jersey Veterans Memorial Home in Vineland.

Through a program called Second Wind Dreams, people like Leon Glowacki received an all expense paid dinner to his favorite restaurant.

Mr. Hank Tapken received his ultimate dream of seeing Toby Keith in concert.

But nothing could beat Rick Toler's dream.

He has never met his 19-year-old daughter Brianna…until today.

"I really want to meet him really, really bad. I just want to be a part of his life," Brianna said.

"I'm just happy to see her. I'm just happy to see a smile on [her] face," Rick said.

Finally, after searching for his daughter for 17 years, Rick's dream finally came true.
