A young Marine named Nathan secretly flew home to surprise his grandmother, 74-year-old Mena Lebrum. Unfortunately, his homecoming didn’t go as planned.
In the video below, posted on September 11, 2017, Mena’s family brings her outside, without her glasses. She doesn’t understand what’s going on, but her family keeps telling her to look.
She peeks around the corner of the garage, but can’t see anything without her glasses on. Her family tells her to look closer but it’s no use and the confused grandma just stands there.
Suddenly, her Marine grandson realizes he needs to take action for this surprise to work and jumps closer to her. She still can’t see, so Nathan walks right up to her, face-to-face.
Finally, Mena looks into her grandson’s eyes and freaks out. She can’t believe he is home to see her!
In the end, Mena and Nathan give each other a long-awaited hug and smile for the camera. She can’t get over the fact that he flew all the way over for this surprise, and her appreciation gleams across her face.
