It's always heartbreaking to see soldiers deploying to different parts of the world, leaving behind their family to go on with life.  It's easier said than done.  That's why it's always very moving to see the homecoming videos.

When we see videos of soldiers returning home to their family it's always very moving.  When the family goes above and beyond to make the return a big surprise it cranks up emotion to "11".  As we can see if the video below from KSAT-TV in San Antonio, one young boy was so caught up in his free throws he didn't even notice his mom, who he hadn't seen in eight months, sneak up right behind him.
