Mom Goes On Her Lunch Break & Is Shocked To See Her Airman Son Waiting For Her

When women and men join the military, they are not the only ones who are making sacrifices. Their families who stay behind at home are also making sacrifices.

It can be very hard on families for them to get through everyday life while their family member is overseas. If they have kids, one parent cares for them while their spouse is deployed. If a son or daughter is deployed, their parent(s) will have feelings of worry until they are home.

When Denise Dukes Felder’s, of Cincinnati, Ohio, son, Jeffrey Felder Jr., joined the Air Force, she knew she would have to be apart from him for long periods of time.

Felder Jr. is now a Sergeant in the Air Force, and had been deployed to Saudi Arabia for a year. When he knew he was finally coming home, he decided to plan a special surprise for his mom.

When Denise took her lunch break at work, she thought she was meeting with her daughter. Little did she know, she would receive the surprise of a lifetime.

When Denise opened the door during her break, she was expecting to see her daughter. When she saw her son standing there instead, she couldn’t believe her eyes.

She began screaming and ran straight for her son, giving him the biggest hug while jumping up and down.

This was certainly a lunch date she will never forget!
