Soldier Surprises Nurse Dad After Deployment

A nurse dad struggled to hold back his tears when his military son returned home from deployment to surprise him after nine months overseas. In the sweet footage, shot in the nursing home where Mark Morrison works, his son Zach is initially seen walking through a hallway. Then, when he reached the front desk, his father happened to be walking around the corner, immediately noticing the familiar figure looking back at him. Mark double took, before heading over for an emotional hug with Zach, a staff sergeant with the United States Army. As the pair embraced, the moment got too much for Michael, who started to well up with happy tears. The surprise took place at a nursing home in Asheville, North Carolina, on December 20, 2022, and Michael was so shocked, family said, because Zach was not supposed to return home until January.
