Nobody likes to be separated from the people they care about, but it’s a reality our military men and women face every day. So when they finally get to return home after a deployment, no matter how long they’ve been away, it’s an emotional reunion.

When an Atlanta 10-year-old was getting ready for bed and saying his good nights to mom and dad, his dad was filming him, but he didn’t know why. The boy starts to head to bed when his older brother - who he thought was still deployed overseas - appears in the hallway of their house.

The video shows the touching moment when these brothers hug after a long year apart. The younger brother leaps into his big brother’s arms and you can feel the love just from watching their embrace.
