“My brother Lance Corporal Brandon Dievendorff has been deployed overseas in Okinawa Japan for the past two years. I am attending Grand Canyon University to pursue a future in nursing and thought I was going to be the one to pick up my brother from Sky Harbor airport so we could surprise my parents. Little did I know that a month ago my brother contacted my roommate and set up a plan to surprise me in class! I guess he actually flew in on December 6th and was driven back to our home town to surprise my parents, then they all drove down to Phoenix on December 7th and met up with my roommate. The video shows me in my chemistry class completely oblivious until he is quite literally standing right next to me. After two years apart it was so incredibly amazing to have him home!
