Having just returned from Iraq after a seven month tour of duty on the front lines, the men of the 2nd Light Armored Reconnaissance Battalion Alpha Company hadn’t even gone home to their loved ones. They pretty much went straight from the planes to the Oprah Winfrey show, where they showed an incredible amount of patience, composure, and gratitude for the response.

In typical Oprah fashion, that isn’t all that they would be grateful for. Showing incredible patience herself, she finally drops the bombshell revelation that the reason they went from the planes to her TV studio was to be reunited with their loved ones. The soldiers are initially confused before being overjoyed at the heartwarming reunions with their sons, daughters, wives, and loved ones.
