Deployed Soldier Denied Leave to See Birth, Then Army Does About Face…

People who work in the military for the nation are deployed for months and even years at a time, often in far away places. During that period the service men and women miss out on a lot of important elements of their life. But when they do get a chance to come home, the reunion is truly heartwarming.

A National Guard Sergeant surprises his wife and newly born daughter in the hospital.

John Vorrath was deployed to the Middle East when his wife was pregnant. Months passed and when her due date approaching, John’s leave application to see the baby’s delivery was denied. Hence, he didn’t get a chance to witness the birth of his child in person.

But on the day of the birth, the Army changed its mind and John was allowed a temporary leave to surprise his loved ones in the hospital. After 22 hours of flight, the father of two made his way to the hospital. The reunion between the family is truly satisfying to watch. John’s two-year-old sons walk in and meet his dad for the first time after deployment.
