Marine Returns From Deployment To Surprise Girlfriend At Dress Fitting

A loving boyfriend and Marine gave his girlfriend quite a shock during her prom dress fitting, as he suddenly appeared after seven months serving overseas. Xander Hammerstrom, 19, from Wilmington, Delaware, had been serving in the Middle East - and his girlfriend, Jackie Blanco, 18, had no idea he was coming home. Having liaised with Jackie’s sister, Emily, Xander planned to be at his girlfriend’s dress fitting earlier this year, on February 15. As Jackie left the changing room wearing a red dress, she pulled back the curtain to see her boyfriend standing there. With Emily capturing the moment on video, a completely stunned Jackie initially froze before covering her eyes as the tears began to flow. She then pulled back the curtain to take some time in the change room to compose herself, before heading in to embrace Xander, who serves as a lance corporal.
