We love military mom homecoming videos. Most of the time they make us cry or at least tear up a bit. It fills us all with such hope and happiness that even though we know we’ll cry, we click on the video anyway.
It doesn’t matter if our family members are deployed or home; we all have the same raw emotions. We are not alone in this when you see how many times a video has been viewed and shared.

Maybe it’s the joy we can see in the faces of those surprised. A military homecoming is a wonderful time and surprise homecomings are the best.

The beginning of this video shows something most don’t however, the nervous and anxious military mom waiting for her opportunity to be reunited with her child. We often look to the family members that have been eagerly awaiting their return. It’s nice to have an inside look in the perspective of the military mom.
This little boy captured the world’s heart when he threw military rules out the window and ran straight into the arms of his mother while she was standing in formation. Both of his parents serve in the National Guard. In December he welcomed his father home in a similarly excited way. Being a military mom is challenging and moments like this are precious. It had been 19 months since this little 3 year old had both parents together at the same time.
Military moms are thankful for the precious moments they have with their families. Just in time for Thanksgiving, this military mom was able to surprise her little girl at school.
