U.S. Army Son Surprises Mom Before Deployment to Afghanistan

September 26, 2013

“My nephew is in the Army and has been stationed in Germany, but he is being deployed to Afghanistan soon. He got a 10-day leave and decided to surprise his mother. Unfortunately, his flight got in late, so he didn’t get to my house until almost 1am. So I called his mom and told her that my girlfriend had a bad migraine and needed her to help us get her to the ER. This was her reaction upon walking into my kitchen and seeing him sitting on the counter. Priceless!”
