Soldiers Surprising Their Loved Ones Videos
A friend at Fort Stewart just sent me an amazing video. It made me cry, and unless you have a heart of stone, it will greatly affect you. I know what it's like having a loved one fighting on foreign soil. My first cousin, James, fought in Desert Storm as a marine, and I worried about him all the time. I'll never forget the day he returned home!
Friends and family members lined the highway in his small home town of Irwinville, GA, to welcome him back. Then we all joined together in a celebration at his parents' house. I was filled with a multitude of powerful emotions - pride, relief, joy, and patriotism. Of course, I was also very thankful that he came back to us, safe and sound.
If you don't watch any other video on this page, please watch this first one!
The first video had such a profound effect on me that I searched for more. I found many, many heartwarming videos of U.S. troops returning home unexpectedly to their loved ones, resulting in joyous reunions. I've posted a few of them here.
Local soldier mom
This last video is one of a local soldier mom from Fitzgerald, GA. She had been away from her two small children for a year, while they stayed with their grandmother.
I cannot imagine leaving my children for a year to serve my country. I think of all the things I would have missed as they grew up without me.
Kudos to all the soldiers who have the dedication and love of country to leave their families in order to serve. No matter how you feel about war, you have to respect these men and women in uniform, along with the sacrifices their families are making! Support our troops!
