Military sons surprise parents by coming home and marching in hometown 4th of July parade

Every 4th of July our family enjoys the Grasslake 4th of July parade. It is our family tradition, and one we've been doing for 25 years! In the beginning of the parade marches the Color Guard, representing all branches of the military. Every year, we stand and place our right hand over our heart to show respect. This year as the Color Guard marched, my brothers (one is an Officer in the US Army, and the other is an Officer in the US Navy) were in formation and in uniform. My parents were oblivious they were even in town, thinking they were at their respective bases. I was able to capture their complete surprise and shock as John and Tom marched towards them and the crowd erupted in cheers! Ironically, my Mom happened to be filming the Color Guard with her phone to send it to John and Tom so they could feel like they were a part of our tradition for 4th of July! The video clip from her point of view is on this link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=leiY2YTOIpI&feature=youtu.be
