Could you imagine your siblings being off to Italy for three years to serve their country? Elizabeth waited that long until she finally saw her brother Shane again. The sweet part is, she wasn't even expecting him to walk through the door of their Arizona home.  

Homecomings come in all forms but one thing is the same... The sheer surprise and joy within that one moment. 

It wouldn't be completely out of the ordinary to see a Ninja Turtle in karate class which is why Amelia Messenger was not phased by the costumed figure standing before her. It wasn't until the "turtle" removed his head that she recognized just who he was... "Daddy!" After nine months of separation, this is a sweet reunion for a military dad in Florida. Via Caters Clips
