Master Sgt. James M. Bonner delivers some bittersweet words about his comrades before surprising his wife and children at a patriotic school assembly.
“It was the day of my best friend’s wedding. Her (now) sister-in-law and I kept this a secret for over a month: B (her U.S. Marine brother) wasn’t suppose to be back stateside till the week after the wedding.. SURPRISE!”
“I was in Korea. After being there for 370 days, I contacted my daughter’s college to set up a surprise. It was very hard to keep secret, but the school was wonderful in setting everything up. My youngest had been surprised in the past, but never all three of them together. So, I had to make this happen. Thanks to all the folks at Georgia Southern University for all their support.”
