U.S. Marine Gets Surprised by His 8-Year-Old Little Sister

We show many videos of servicemen and women surprising their families, but it’s a special treat when we receive a video that’s the other way around! Here is what Barbara had to say about her video:

“This is a video of my Marine son getting surprised by his little sister. My son-in-law took my 8-year-old daughter with him to deliver my son’s motorcycle to him in AZ. Our Marine did not know that his little sister was coming. This video is of when he found out! :)”

May 09, 2012

“When my husband left on his deployment, our 6-year-old son could not walk on his own. He has cerebral palsy. Doctors originally said that he would never walk or do much of anything. While daddy was away, he learned to walk. For his homecoming, we set it up for Michael to walk to his daddy for the first time ever! We kept the fact that he could walk a secret the whole time his dad was gone!”
