Just thought this would brighten people's day. My son just got back to the US from being deployed in Afghanistan for 9 months, drove 17 hours straight from Twenty-nine Palms USMC base, California to Eugene, Oregon just to surprise his mom at 5 am. This is a quick video my daughter took of his mom's reaction:

"Just thought this would brighten people's day."

Sure brightened mine. Let's bring 'em all home and put the mothers of the world in charge of things. Maybe then, there won't be any more Afghanistans and a different kind of tears.

I'm real happy for you and your wife.
