Every year numerous military homecoming surprises are captured on video.  Over the Memorial Weekend, I went on Youtube to check out some of the surprises that have happened over the last few years at sporting events.

Now I've seen a few of these before on SportsCenter and other outlets, but even the ones I'd seen before brought tears to my eyes.

On weekends such as Memorial Day Weekend and Veterans Day among other days where we celebrate our current and former military members, we all strive to be more patriotic and caring.  But I challenge us all to do so every day of the year.  It can be done and its the least we can do for those who've changed our lives for the better.

Here is a look at a few of the videos that I watched over the weekend.
