Holiday Soldier Homecoming Surprise


Two New Jersey students had an emotional reunion with their older brother after he returned home from the military and surprised them just in time for Christmas.

Mark DiTizio never suspected that his Christmas wish would come true while he was performing a holiday concert at his New Jersey school. Mark, 11, wrapped up his performance with a Christmas wish, “All I want for Christmas is to see my brother who’s in the United States military.” As he walked away from the microphone, Private Second Class Eric Shaw entered the room wearing his army fatigues and surprised his unsuspecting younger brother.
