A soldier coming home from a long deployment is always very emotional, but it’s even more heartwarming when it’s a complete surprise.
Two soldiers in the videos below both wanted to surprise their mothers, and they made sure to keep their returns a secret.
One son visited his mother with flowers at her work, and everyone clapped as she screamed and celebrated and cried with joy at seeing her son again.
This son was sneaking up to his house, when he saw his neighbor and asked her to help with the surprise. The neighbor willingly rang his doorbell and told his mother to come outside.
His mother’s shock and happiness were evident as she immediately gave him a big hug.
“How did you do that? I thought you weren’t coming home until August,” the mom said.
He replied with a laugh. “Yeah, something like that.”
What’s even cuter is when a younger relative comes outside and greets the soldier.
