DAYTONA BEACH, FL (FOX 46 WJZY) - A Marine decided to surprise his mother by coming home for a visit after unforeseen circumstances caused her to have to cancel her trip to see him.
Rekita Lee's son, Tre, was stationed in Japan in August of last year. Rekita says her family was planning on visiting Tre in October, but they ended up not being able to go.
Little did Rekita know, Tre, her brother, and her best friend were working together to plan a surprise visit home!
Tre told his mother he was going to North Korea for special training, but that "it wasn’t anything to be concerned about and that our conversation would be limited through the holidays."
But he wasn't going to North Korea at all. After not seeing his mother for over a year, Tre flew home to Daytona Beach, FL and waited inside his mother's home to surprise her.
The tears began flowing immediately as Rekita turned around to see her son. It was a heartwarming reunion.
