Military Mom Returns from Deployment, Sweet Airport Reunion with Her Son Goes Viral

September 18, 2018Sep 18, 2018

Our men and women in uniform do some much to protect the freedoms we have as Americans. Each year, thousands of citizens become soldiers and make sacrifices for our country.

For one woman, that sacrifice came in the form of time away from her own family. When Air Force Staff Sergeant Chelsey Speicher returned from her first deployment, something amazing happened.

Chelsey anxiously traveled home to greet her husband and her young son, Bennett, for the first time in months. The pair had kept in contact over FaceTime while she was away, but nothing beats spending time with your family in person. When she finally was reunited with her family, the amazing moment was capture on video. It has since gone viral.

"Speicher said she was initially nervous about how her son would react since she hadn’t seen him in so long, but the young boy was clearly overjoyed by the encounter as he can be seen jumping into his mom’s arms and grabbing her face," reported Fox.

Please join us in thanking all of our military service members for all that they do for our nation. May God bless each and every one of them!
