There’s nothing like the bond between a mother and son.

When a loving mother and son are separated, it can take a toll on both of them — especially if the son is in the military. I can only imagine how scary it is being a mom and knowing your little boy is risking his life every day.

Rekita Lee is one of those mothers.

According to Inside Edition, her son, Tre’Vaughn, is a Marine who was deployed to Japan over a year ago. Rekita was unable to visit her son while he was deployed, leaving her heartbroken and missing him.

But one day, Rekita’s parents called her up and asked her to come over. Surely, she was just expecting a standard day at her parents’ house — she had no idea what was in store for her.

Tre’Vaughn was waiting for his mom inside. And when she saw him, she totally lost it.

This reunion is so heartwarming. It definitely reminds me how much our military families sacrifice to keep us safe.

It was so nice of Tre’Vaughn to think ahead and plan this special surprise for his loving mom. He planned it with his uncle, who kept his return a secret for months!
