For the past year U.S. Marine Corporal Robert Brooks has been working at the base in Japan.His younger brother Reginald Coleman II was singing during his school’s holiday performance in Beaumont. Reginald didn’t expect to see his older brother Robert standing right next to him.
“Marine was deployed with 26th MEU six months after returning home from a deployment with 8th Comm. He missed his son’s birthday for a second year in a row. But this time also missed Christmas. The children received a note from “Santa” saying that he had a present that he was working on and as soon as he had it finished he would bring it to them. Thanks to the employee’s at Lowes for helping this Marine and Mama surprise their babies.”- Erin Jones
