Airman, Home Early from Afghanistan, Surprises Mom & Sister

March 14, 2011

My son, Airman Brant Heater, with the help of his girlfriend, Haley, pulled off an incredible surprise.  After 8 months of deployment in Afghanistan, Brant came home for R&R.  Their intricate planning paid off as Haley picked him up from the airport without my knowledge, parked the car a couple blocks away, and walked up our street and onto the front porch. There really aren’t words to describe how I felt when I opened that door and saw my son, who I wasn’t expecting to see for at least 3 more months.  I’m so thankful!  God bless all our troops and their families! And thanks to for all you do.  It’s very inspiring to see the videos.
