Watch Coming Home

This is a reality television series that honors the troops. Each episode, they show soldiers who have been serving overseas and help them to create the best coming home surprise that they can. There isn't anything that they can't do. They also show videos that were sent in that others have shared about what they did to surprise people. These are great because for those who are home when these men and women deploy, this makes them feel as though it is worth it all.

Many of them are men and women who have children. The host of the show pulls every strings and you are right there with him as he is making this happen. This is really something that people will love to watch as it is touching to see how this comes about. Many times, they are coming home early and the family has gone through the deployment a number of times. Many think that they would be used to it, but we learn that it's hard on everyone.

There are many things that they have done. They have had some running out on the field dressed as a pro sport team player. Some have stepped in on their child's play or game. You name it; it's been done. That's the nice thing about all this. You never know what they are going to be doing next and money isn't an issue. Many places are happy to oblige. They pull the strings needed from sending them on a vacation to hiding the soldier until it's time to reveal. It's nice to see these families getting something in return.
