Moms Arrange Surprise Reunion for Military Kids Separated For 17 Months

Living as part of a military family often means moving around a lot. It can be tough on kids to form lasting friendships.

For these two kids, the connection between them was strong enough to last a lifetime. Both children were born to military families around the same time. They grew up together and became the best of friends. But as it happens in the military world, the friends were separated and spent over 17 months apart.

Their moms decided to surprise them with a weekend together, and from the way they embrace it's clear they've been missing each other.

Watch the entire video. The little boy, Eli, doesn't seem to understand what's happening at first. But once he realizes his best friend is within arm's reach he just can't let go of her.
