Army Soldier Surprises Sister After 9 Month Deployment

“My younger brother, Adam, was deployed to Kuwait for about 9 or 10 months. In the beginning of July, we heard that some of the troops were starting to get sent home, but Adam wasn’t one of them. We didn’t hear from him for 2 weeks and my mom started to get worried, but brushed it off as him being busy packing things up and getting ready to come home. Well, the reason no one heard from him for 2 weeks was because he was in Georgia but didn’t want anyone to know he was back in the states. The evening of this video (Friday, July 19) we were having a birthday party for my 2 year old nephew (Adam’s son). I went to my mom’s house thinking I would be seeing Adam’s wife and his 2 kids, and not actually Adam. When he walked, out I was in shock and disbelief. I didn’t know what else to say besides, ‘What the hell are you doing here?!’

This was one of the best surprises I will ever get in my lifetime. The last time I saw my brother was in January at our father’s funeral. Our dad passed away December 31, 2012. The tears we cried that day were tears of great sadness. Unlike that day, the tears in this video are of happiness. I am so happy that my brother is home and safe with his family!”
