Beautiful: Airman home from Afghanistan wakes up his brother to surprise him

(CBS) - This very short video is of an airman named Bill who has been in Afghanistan for the past 9 months, waking up his brother, Brian, to surprise him.  Warning: You might get a bit teary-eyed in watching this.

The video quality is very low, but the reaction is truly beautiful, and a definite must-see moment I recommend everyone watch today. It will immediately make your day a lot brighter, I promise.

UPDATE: To add to how much this post will brighten your day, below is a video recorded on January 12, 2011, of a US Air Force Captain, Molly, seeing her dog for the first time in months after returning home from Afghanistan.
