This is one of the best reactions to one of these “military surprises” I’ve yet to come across.

Derrick Jenkins, a 13 year old who’s mother had been serving in Kuwait for eight months, went to the free throw line thinking he was shooting the free throws on a technical foul.

This put everyone on the court behind him so that n one would react and give it away. Pretty smart.

It was all just a set up so the team could sneak his mother in behind him.

She came in and his reaction, well, it’s priceless. Imagine the joy that over took this kid to produce this reaction.

Grab your tissues and watch it here:
