Memorial Day: Our Favorite Military Homecoming Videos

What could be more heartwarming than a soldier returning home to his or her family after months in a foreign land?

The emotional surprise, the heartfelt tears and the joy that simply cannot be contained -- all seem to epitomize what our servicemen and women risk their lives for.

So, this Memorial Day, as we pay tribute to those who have selflessly given up their lives for this country, we also want to celebrate the soldiers stationed around the world for their dedication and service.

As a tribute to our troops, we have compiled our 11 favorite military homecoming videos.

Get out those tissues!
