An Unexpected Return
It's great when soldiers can pull off a surprise return, but as Stephanie explained, it doesn't always go as planned:

"The last time my husband came back, he scared me half to death. He came home early, at about midnight, and I didn’t hear him come in the house. He wanted to surprise me and surprise me he did.

I heard the baby crying, so I got up to check on her and when I opened my bedroom door, he was standing there. I screamed and about had a heart attack. I told him God was looking over him because I slept with a shotgun next to the bed, and if I had heard someone in the house, I might have used it!"
