Video: One of The Last Marines to Return from Afghanistan Gets A Big Surprise

Zoe Romanowsky - published on 12/09/14

After a year apart, military wife flies across the country to surprise her husband.

There are many videos out there of military men and women being united with their loved ones — and sometimes surprising them. But it’s not often when family members surprise their returning-home loved ones. In this video, a wife in Maryland flies to California, where her husband is stationed, to welcome him home after he’s been in Afghanistan for a year. He didn’t think she’d be there because of the distance, but little did he know… The power of this simple video is in the anticipation of waiting for Sergeant Taylor to recognize his wife, and how overcome he is to see her.
