There is always a sweet note to the moment a soldier comes home from deployment. It is one of those intimate moments that, if managed to capture on video, leave not a dry eye in the room. There is always some screaming involved as well, especially when moms and sisters are involved, no matter if it is somewhere outside or in the comfort of their own home. One proud Army mom was caught completely by surprise that day, when her son came home a month early to surprise her!

He decided it would be best to position himself in the middle of the plaza where his mom worked nearby and just sit there, in the middle of broad daylight, read a newspaper and wait for her to come off work. Away from him, another family member is recording and waiting for the unsuspecting mom to come by and see if she will recognize him or not.

Sure enough there she comes, still in her uniform, backpack on, ready to go home. She passes by this soldier, minding his own damn business and gives him a quick look-down, as any mother would do in her stead, hoping that maybe it is her own son. Then she takes another good look, to make sure her eyes aren’t deceiving her. Is it really him?

It seems she exclaims his name “Noah”, but with her level of excitement it is far too hard to tell. It matters not, because he tosses that newspaper and opens his arms wide to give his mom the best homecoming present ever!

Can we get a tissue, please?
