Sergeant Brook "Travis" Burton's mother wasn't expecting her son home for another six weeks, so when he walked into her workplace's staff meeting, to say she was surprised is an understatement. She was overjoyed! And we assume her eyes watered-up, too, but seeing as she works for Sunglass Hut and everyone there was wearing shades, it's hard to tell just how teary she did or didn't get.
This was Burton's second deployment in Afghanistan, and it's clear his mother is beyond thrilled he made it home safe and sound, and a month and a half early, at that.
He now plans to now enroll in the University of Cincinnati to study criminal justice. This mom's day just keeps getting better and better.
Watch the emotional reunion:
