The members of our military sacrifice their lives in many ways, including missing out on their loved ones’ special moments. It’s become a largely, but reluctantly, accepted fact of anyone who has known and loved a person in the armed forces. When her sister, Hannah, got married, Lealah Abraham decided to surprise her with a very special wedding gift: she snuck their enlisted brother home in time for the ceremony.
Hannah was hugging her father, unaware of the man in a dress uniform walking up behind her. She spun around and was caught completely off guard as a pair of formal shoes entered her field of vision. As she looked up, she quickly realized just who it was. As the two happily embraced, Hannah choked out a teary, “Oh my God. You’re here.”
