Surprise Military Family Reunions (Video)

military dad daughter reunionOkay, this video of surprise military family reunions that's going around the internet (originally posted on Facebook by Goobig Qp) made me weep like a baby. The video is made up mostly of kids reuniting with their military dads and moms, and their surprised faces and all-out hugs tug intensely at the heartstrings.

Really, it can't be said enough. I am so grateful for the men and women in the armed forces who must leave their spouses, their kids (sob!), and their mothers (double sob!) behind in order to serve our country. Thank you to each and every one of you.

And this video, what a testament about our innate impulse to grab and hug tightly the ones we love the most.


See how long you can hold it together watching this one. The very first little girl who literally clutches at her heart had me bawling -- and the boy who literally leaps into his dad's arms and the surprised wife who cries with relief and the mom who screams all around the room and the dad who lifts his big boy into his arms and, well, see for yourself...

Which reunion touches you the most?
