Most viral videos of returning servicemen involve them surprising their families with an early return. But this is a case where the family had a surprise for one Marine returning from seven months in Afghanistan.

Staff Sgt. Jeremy Cooper and his wife Melissa have five children, one of whom is Michael, who has cerebral palsy. They were told he would never be able to walk, but one day while his father was overseas, he stood on his own. With the help of therapy, he learned to walk beyond all expectations.

Unaware of this progress upon his return to Camp Lejeune in North Carolina in December 2012, Sgt. Cooper was ushered into a gymnasium to see Michael standing across the basketball court, and was stunned to see him greet him on foot.
