Gary Weddle refused to shave his beard until Osama bin Laden was caught, dead or alive.
Weddle is a 50-year-old middle school teacher from outside Spokane, and he hasn't shaved since 9-11, almost 10 years. His beard measured 15-inches-long!
"It was manageable. I learned to use conditioner and a hair dryer," said Weddle.
But on Sunday night, Weddle, along with the rest of the world got the news that bin Laden was dead. That's when he reached for the razor for that long-awaited shave.
His wife recorded the magical moment that he has been waiting for, the razor buzzed and he shaved away 10 years of growth.
