Young Disabled Boy Surprised by His Older Brother, a U.S. Army Soldier

"Our son Joshua is disabled, and his world revolves around his relationship with his siblings. When his older brother John deployed, Joshua had a lot of problems with him being gone. The last time they saw each other was October 2010. We try to keep them connected through Facebook and Skype, but with time differences and schedules, that is not always possible. Here is the video of their reunion in July 2011. John came in at midnight the night before, and we kept his arrival completely secret from Joshua. This video was filmed first thing the next morning. John is currently stationed in Korea and will be there for two tours. This visit is the only one we will get before he hopefully comes back stateside, which is scheduled in 16 months."
