A Touching, Must-See Video of Returning Vets

leave a comment »

When I first heard about this video, it came to me in an email titled “Let’s See How Tough You Are…..”

I must confess, I thought I knew what I was in for. The video starts out with familiar scenes of soldiers returning home to their families. But this video wasn’t about a planned arrival on the tarmac at an U.S. Air Force base.

This video is of soldiers surprising their loved ones with an unexpected arrival at places the family members, most of them young children, might never expect — the classroom, the school gym, a little league ballpark, their bedrooms and kitchens.

Whether you consider yourself tough or not, this video offers you a glimpse of just how much our service members are missed and just how bad their loved ones want to see them come home safe. This video takes about 10 seconds for you to realize that, no matter who you are, it’s OK not to act “tough.”
