Soldiers Surprise Loved Ones With Emotional Homecomings. The Video Will Tug Your Heart-Strings.

Those who have a loved one serving in the armed forces know exactly what the people in this video feel like. Each one feels like they are missing a part of their heart. But when their soldier comes home– after who knows how long away– it’s guaranteed to be emotional… In the best way ever.

The soldiers in this video decided to make their homecomings a surprise. With each reunion comes a tear-jerking, heart-wrenching moment of love and joy. The video– a compilation of homecomings– has touched the hearts of over 115 million people on Facebook.

Watching this video, it’s hard to know whether to smile, laugh, cry, or just stare with joy. The only thing that is certain is the amount of love these civilians have for their soldiers. From Disneyland, to the Bonnie Hunt Show, to under a Christmas tree, to football games, even to a bridal photoshoot… Each of these surprises is beautiful and deeply moving. My personal favorite is the little girl who gets surprised in her elementary class! Her face of disbelief says it all.

Check out the heartwarming compilation below.
