“This homecoming was recorded during a local military church group. Sarah had thought her husband was coming home the following day really late at night. Little did she know everyone was in on a plan of her husband coming home that evening to surprise her!!”
In this video, country-music singer Billy Ray Cyrus sings the national anthem at a baseball game. Afterwards, Erica Brown is invited to the field to throw the first pitch. Little did she know that the catcher is her husband, a U.S. soldier home early from deployment. After the surprise, he gets down on one knee to pop the question! Welcome home, soldier!
This one is a real tearjerker! (But happy tears, of course) Hope you guys like it as much as we do!
“Our son, recently home from Afghanistan, surprises his sister during the graduation ceremony at California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo. She was extremely disappointed when we told her he would not be back until the end of the month. Guess we lied a little. Ok, a lot. A special thanks to all at Cal Poly who made this possible. Enjoy!”
