US Soldier Surprised by News Crew and a Wife 100 Pounds Lighter Than When He Left More Than One Year Ago for Afghanistan Deployment
We've all seen the videos of reunions following military deployment. As sad as the videos of soldiers leaving may be, seeing the reunion video always brings a tear to my eye. We've seen soldiers surprising their parents, their spouses, their kids and even their dogs, but this is the first video I've seen of a soldier BEING surprised upon arrival.
As you can see, it's a very emotional experience. I'm surprised there wasn't MORE of a surprised expression on his face, but after 18-36 of plane travel and arriving to a camera crew and a large crowd, I can understand.
In the spirit of tearful & fun reunions, I've put a few of my favorites below.
