Sandra O'Hara was supposed to be in South Korea for 12 months, but the Air Force let her come home a little early. She decided to use this opportunity to surprise her mother, sister, and two brothers. The family was at a local restaurant in Austin, Texas and dad helped get the staff in on the surprise. Sandra surprised her family with a cake and judging by mom's reaction, their plan worked perfectly.

That's not the only surprise a kid in the armed forces had for their mother. Navy Aviation Mechanic Darius Porter figured the best way to announce he was home was to sneak into his mom's work with some flowers. While she was busy folding some jeans, Darius walked right up to her and got her attention like any other customer. Mom was so happy she just had to share the news with the entire store.

Gayle On Film: 'Justice League'

Gayle On Film: 'Justice League'

Justice League: B+ NO SPOILERS: Batman has got a problem. Earth is once again in peril and reeling from the death of Superman, so the "rich" guy (his words) with toys needs to build a team. He knows Wonder Woman is a lock to join him. The Flash (Ezra Miller) would be a great find if he can track him down. Aquaman (Jason Gamboa) and Cyborg (Ray Fisher) need a little more convincing, but time isn't on Batman's side. Super villain Steppenwolf is seeking to subject the planet to his dark powers, and like many films of this type, the villain is seeking pieces to a powerful enigma to get exactly that, and he's not afraid to wield his electro-axe to get it. Matter of fact, there's a lot of wielding of power as if you're watching the feats of strength in a Festivus gathering in this action-heavy offering. View Now
