I love stories like these. This video is absolutely heart-warming. A man risks his life to serve his country while day after day those who love him often have no idea where he even is let alone if he's alright. Then comes that day he returns home to a safer world. When he can arrange to return home as a surprise to his family it's hard to not get choked up. You see the year or two of constant stress and worry and fear inside their mother or father or siblings rush out of their bodies head to toe, filled instantly instead with total joy and relief.

Here's a story about one such soldier who surprises his mom while she's at a restaurant. She had no clue he was back home safe until this moment.

Watch the video footage of the moment below.
