    Hooray! Thanks for your service soldier. And thanks to United Parcel Service for allowing this to happen.

    Nothing like a Mothers hug.
    Yes, I cried tears of joy seeing their reunion.

    UPS actually deserves an "ATTA BOY" for allowing this surprise to take place. Lets keep our fingers crossed that whoever allowed it to happen won't be fired for breaking company regulation.

    Mom was forced to work through her breaks to make up for the lost production.

    I heard UPS docked her pay for this video.

    This was a feel-good moment which UPS helped to coordinate. The look on his Mom's face was priceless. Why the need for the negativity?

    Time and place.

    As a parent who has a son over there, it was very moving. Mine should be back stateside by Thanksgiving. Thank you More for sharing this. I would also hope she got the rest of her shift off.

    This is a very special moment...anyone who has or had a loved one in a war zone knows how this feels. Please dont belittle it with negative comments.

    My post #6 was not directed at the mom or the returning soldier. It was directed at the company.
    Anyone who thinks I don't support our troops or the parents thereof may want to rethink.
    I'm sorry if I confused anyone.

    A lady in our hub son was recently recognized as soldier of the year by the CT National Guard. UPS printed out an article about son and mother with pictures to all employees there. She was truly touched with all the kind words from her fellow workers.

    This is one time when we should not make all these negative remarks and just feel good about this wonderful video.
