There are scores of people all over the US who have to say goodbye to loved ones headed off to fulfill their duty to the US military and our nation, many of them fathers and mothers leaving behind their husbands, wives, and families. While the resounding sentiment over such a departure is not to worry, he or she will be coming home before they know it, a nagging sense of fear is all too common among those who watch them as they take their leave.
So when the Bronson family made a Facebook video for Captain Hyrum Bronson, a US Air Force doctor that had been deployed to Afghanistan for 6 months, while enjoying a beach day at the Japanese island of Okinawa, the last thing they expected was that they would be delivering the message in person, 3 weeks before he was due to come back home. Check out this amazing reunion between a loving family and their serviceman reporting for duty.
