Everyone, at some point, has watched a video of soldiers coming home and surprising their family members. Youâ€™ve probably even seen videos of pets greeting their soldier dads as they walk through the doors for the first time in months, or even years. But this time, the soldiers are the ones getting surprised.
Back in 2007, Oprah invited 31 Marines from the 2nd Light Armored Reconnaissance Battalion, Alpha Company, and Naval Corpsmen onto her show immediately after they returned from a seven-month tour of duty in Iraq. Most of them hadnâ€™t gotten the chance to check in at home or meet their families before arriving for the show, but they were all in for a happy surprise.
As soon as they walked on stage, these Marines were greeted with tremendous applause, but that wasnâ€™t the best part. At the cue given by Oprah, all the Marinesâ€™ families rushed out onto the stage, running to greet their loved ones who they hadnâ€™t seen for seven months.
The looks of joy and happiness on these Marines faces and the elation of finally being reunited with their families brought tears to the audience. Spouses, parents, siblings, children â€“ all sorts of family were running to greet them.
