SUNSET BEACH, NC (WECT) -

A father wished his son a happy birthday in a unique, touching and modern way.

On Monday, a Facebook post shared on WECT meteorologist Gannon Medwick's page shows a man writing "Happy Birthday Jeff" in the sand on Sunset Beach before sunrise. Jeff, who is serving in Afghanistan, is the man's son.

According to the post, Jeff's father used a drone to get aerial footage of the happy birthday message, then sent it to his son.
