A mother and her children have arrived at the restaurant. They’ve been seated outside. The server has delivered their complimentary chips, and is currently dropping off their drinks.
There’s just one person missing — the whole family isn’t there. That’s because one son, serving in the United States military, had been deployed to Iraq for a one-year tour of duty.
We are all profoundly grateful to the brave men and women who volunteer to serve in the military, risking and sacrificing so much for their country and our freedom. The family members and loved ones of service members, however, don’t always get the attention they deserve. They endure constant worry, separation, time lost, and so much more in their support of our military members.
It’s easy to say that this mother missed her son — a lot.
So, when this simple luncheon turned into a surprise homecoming, she was overwhelmed with joy!
Watch this mother’s reaction when she see’s her son for the first time since his deployment!
