Nothing chokes us up more than seeing soldiers surprise their loved ones, but this video definitely had me choking back tears. There is something about the joy on his son's face that will just lift your spirit and bring a tear to your eye.
We all know the dangers our loved ones in the military face when they are deployed to hostile territory. As much as we believe that they will be OK, there will always be a touch of fear for their safety in our hearts. So, when we see videos of them coming home unexpectedly, the surprise and joy pretty much leaps through the screen and squeezes our hearts.
