CINCINNATI, Ohio (WLWT) – Soldiers who spent months fighting for freedom in Afghanistan were reunited with their loved ones in Ohio on Valentine’s Day, but for one an even bigger surprise was in store.
“There he is, go get him,” yelled Emily Tilton to her children as her husband, Staff Sgt. Michael Tilton walked toward the crowd.
After 10 months of not seeing him, children Gracie, Isabel and Adam bolted into his arms.
Moments later came the big surprise: Tilton’s beloved 1979 pickup truck rolled in, completely refurbished.
