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.
