For Memorial Day: 10 Great Surprise Soldier Reunions (VIDEO)
Memorial Day is, of course, the day we honor those soldiers, sailors, airmen (of both sexes) and Marines who have given that last full measure of devotion.
Luckily, most who serve do not have to do that. They sacrifice time with friends and family and put themselves in danger, but they do make it home.
And sometimes they surprise those loved ones, and capture it on video. Here are ten great ones to ponder as Memorial Day weekend begins:
10. Graduation "She wishes he could be here..."
9. Hallway sprint World record in the hallway dash.
8. Kid's look It says it all.

6. Classroom "Mom, get out of here, what are you doing?"
5. The box Now this took some planning.
4. Kid cheerleader Gimme a D!
3. Panera Bread The first of two-fast-food reunions.
2. Chick-Fil-A Good thing it wasn't Sunday.
1. Not only humans The dog seems more choked up than the soldier.
