Touching footage of a US army soldier reuniting with his parents after spending eight years away from his hometown.

After Hurricane Maria he was sent on a mission in Puerto Rico, where he was able to meet his parents in Yabucoa on October 21.

"[The] soldier is assigned to the US Army Joint Forces Land Component Command as part of relief efforts and it was really a coincidence that he also has family here that he had not heard from," the filmer told Newsflare.

"He asked our Chaplain to pray over his brother who has health concerns and he was so choked up he could no longer translate," he added.
