Soldier-to-be surprises his little brother before he goes off to training

10-year-old Conner Dobbyn was given the shock of his life when what he thought was a special delivery was really his older brother, Brad Marek hiding inside a cardboard box before he left for Army training.

After moving to South Carolina from Florida, Connor and his mom hadn’t seen Brad in months as he stayed to live with his dad. Before he went off to boot camp, Brad gave his little brother one last hurrah before beginning his military career.

“He was asking if he could go to a friend’s house, so I was trying to blow it off and think of something last minute,” his mom said. As Conner began to open the enormous gift, he jumpsed back when he saw Brad coming out of the box.
