I love these kind of videos because I have personally experienced the joy of returning home from a dangerous deployment overseas to the loving arms of my family and it gives you more insight into the sacrifice so many families in our area make to defend our country.

According to Kathleen Serie with our news partner KWTX News 10, Fort Hood Sgt. Joshua Rosales returned home from deployment in Kuwait for the last 9 months and surprised his daughter 4th grader Aiyanah Jimenez during a school assembly at Crestview Elementary in Waco on Wednesday. Check out the video above and keep the tissues nearby.

Homecomings like this happen almost daily here in Central Texas and while we don't get to see them all or even do stories about them, we really do appreciate the sacrifices these families make to not only defend our country but also provide a better life for their families.

Once again, Thank you to all the men and women in uniform and their families who sacrifice so much for us all!
