Steven Turner was getting ready to take to the stage for his graduation from Paul W. Bryant High School in Alabama when he had the shock of his life.
The high school student looked around while waiting to be called to the stage and saw his mother – who is an officer in the US Navy and stationed at Guantanamo Bay, and who was not expected to make it home for her son’s graduation after being away for nine months.
It means so much to me, it means the whole world. I thought she wasn’t going to make it.
The entire family were shocked to see Vera, after she kept her return from them and only contacted the school in order to keep it a surprise.
