Camp Lejeune, NC -- You can't watch a troop's homecoming without feeling something, but this reunion had many people tearing up.
When Sergeant Jeremy Cooney left for a seven-month deployment in Afghanistan, his son Michael couldn't walk. Doctors once said he never would, because Michael has cerebral palsy.
But while Sergeant Cooney was overseas, his wife and their three other children taught Michael to stand up on his own and, eventually to take steps. They kept it all secret from his dad, until this moment when he returned to Camp LeJeune.
This reunion actually happened in December 2011, but just surfaced on the internet. You can watch more amazing homecoming stories by clicking here.
