With regard to clips of military family reunions, it’s normally the troopers who go back home to shock their friends and family with their early arrivals. This clip, however, turns the customary military surprise upside down. There are way more than 150,000 U.S. troopers fighting for us in the Middle East. A lot of these men and women dedicate months, and quite often several years, to service, and this keeps them far away from their loved ones.
In 2007, Oprah gave Marines a little bit of surprising happiness. In the video below, 31 Marines have actually just come back to the states after a seven-month tour of duty in Iraq. Most of them hadn’t actually been home prior to making a stop at The Oprah Winfrey Show. However, these Marines from the 2nd Light Armored Reconnaissance Battalion, Alpha Company, and Naval Corpsmen, ended up being in for a big surprise.
“And now, the moment I’ve been waiting for…” Oprah declares. Check out the video below to see how things turn out. You shouldn’t miss this one!
