One of the most difficult aspects of being a man or woman serving in the military is being away from your loved ones for long periods of time. Protecting your country in some of the most dangerous parts of the world means missing a lot of birthdays, holidays and special events. It means not being able to pick up your kids from school or take them to their dentist appointments.
So when military men and women do manage to come home and be reunited with their loved ones, is always a celebration and special moment. The stranger mentioned in the story below knew just how much military personnel sacrifice for their country.
So when he saw U.S. Army soldier Mr. Glascott sitting next to him in an airport, waiting to catch a plane home, he decided to make his leave the best it could be. The business man started asking him more questions about his family and that is how he found out the soldier was heading home for his son’s birthday.
Without asking for too many details, the businessman started working on putting together a special surprise for the soldier he had just met. You won’t believe what the surprise entailed. Watch the clip to find out!
