After coming home, this soldier had one more mission to complete: surprise his mother.
Ryan Gallimore joined the United States Army in late 2012, and has been stationed in Baumholder, Germany for the last two and a half years, according to WTHR.
His sisters hatched a plan to bring Ryan home from deployment. Once they were reunited, the siblings from Thorntown, Indiana proceeded to surprise their mom at a family cookout and pool party.
“My mom had no idea at all,” said Sara Gallimore. “My sister and I had to fib to her that day. I was supposed to be at work and my sister, Angie, told her she was going to class at Ivy Tech. We went to the Chicago O’Hare and picked him up!”
Luckily, Sara was able to document the entire trip.
“I have about 50 videos we took, from us telling her we loved her to what we were doing, which gas station we were filling up at, and to the terrible Chicago traffic,” Sara said.
The surprise? The girls blindfolded their mom and made her touch the faces of different family members to guess who they are. When Ryan’s turn came up, the tears began to flow.
