(Newser) – Miley Cyrus and her dad staged a fun surprise for military families…"fun" being dependent on your love for Hannah Montana, that is. Dozens of families were invited to the March 12 taping of the Disney show, then—gotcha!—told they’d actually be in the show, in a concert scene. “My dad has always been super involved with the troops,” Miley tells People; Billy Ray adds that the episode was his way of saying “thank you.”

"It's going to be a satellite thing where the troops can see their kids,” Cyrus continues. “It's really cool that they're having the opportunity to say hi to a mom or dad they haven't seen in a long time."
