Alejandra Alvarez didn't think anything of it when her husband Angel Santiago scheduled her a hair appointment. Angel is an active soldier in the US Army away in Iraq until fall, so Alejandra didn't expect to see his face walk through the door. Not only does she have fresh locks but her man's in town! We'd say that's a win-win.

A surprise should be two things, startling and emotional. The initial "Oh my gosh, what are you doing here?" is a classic to get on video.

Keith Hill and his momma have been apart since December, a long time if you ask us. Keith's mom moved from North Carolina to Texas, putting some distance between the two. Luckily, Keith has a plan to surprise his mom at dinner.

Military Homecomings: Why You Gotta Make Us Cry?

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.
