Due to Marine duty, Sgt. Brandon Prelesnik hadn’t seen his family for seven months.

His little sister Cheyanna had a particularly tough time dealing with his absence. One day she sent him a special request via letter. She asked him to surprise her on the last day of fourth grade.

She even made sure to tell him which classroom she would be in at the time.

Little did she know, her brother was about to exceed her expectations in a BIG way.

See how long you can go without crying after seeing the big moment for yourself!

Share to pass along the love and inspiration, and take a moment to give thanks to all service families.
