It's been a tough year for a lot of us, but especially for those who are serving in the military and their families. And with the holiday season among us, the absence of loved ones is felt this year more than ever. That's what made these surprise reunions so special.

Stephen Jr. had been away from home for over a year training with the Marines. He and his dad were able to keep his homecoming a secret, so the moment he surprises his mom and sister is so pure. Then, Denis was also coming home to surprise his mom after a year in the Marines. It looks like Christmas isn't canceled after all!
