Surprise homecomings are so popular that several television shows and countless websites dedicate their content solely to documenting the moment military families, separated by deployment, are reunited again. Usually, the service member arranges a surprise for his or her family and tears are often shed.
One Marine wife decided to switch that scenario around.
Her husband’s unit was one of the last to return from Afghanistan, and his was the last group of his unit to return home. He was stationed in California, while she and their children lived in Maryland. He thought they would not be there for the homecoming… but little did he know that the surprise was on him.
When he finally sees his wife standing there, his reaction is priceless.
