U.S. Airman Reunites With Twin Brother After Months Apart

December 14, 2012

“In the video, I’m in the camo, and my twin brother is in the blues. I left for basic training Aug 14, 2012 and graduated Oct 12. My brother got to basic training on Oct 9th, three days before I graduated. I saw him for 60 seconds on my graduation weekend in the back of the church. Other than that we hadn’t seen each other in over 4 months. I have been in tech school and we have only communicated in letters for the last 17 weeks.

This video was taken Saturday morning, December 8th, the day after his graduation. My family didn’t think I could make it for the weekend and my brother was really upset. Well, before my parents got back to the hotel from picking him up at Lackland AFB, I went knocking on my sister’s hotel room. I surprised my sisters, who then helped me surprise my brother. So, this video shows me surprising my brother when he walks into my sister’s hotel room. I know this isn’t a homecoming video, but it is a very good reunion video. My brother and I have an incredible bond.”
