I can be a sappy person and tear up at the drop of a hat sometimes. And such was the case with this video of a soldier surprising his wife and son during the 4th of July parade in Plainview, Texas.

Joe Jimenez returned home from a 9-month deployment and reunited with his wife, Jessica, and 2-year-old son, Urijah, in the middle of the 4th of July parade. She was completely caught of guard.

According to the City of Plainview Facebook page, Jimenez "was stationed at Ft Hood and deployed for 9 months to 5 different countries - Germany, Poland, Bulgaria, Romania and Italy."

The reunion is very touching, so make sure you have some tissues handy. And welcome home, soldier!
