When soldiers get deployed, they are not only going off to risk their lives, they are also putting their lives and their loved ones on hold while they go and protect our country. These brave men and women are so missed they their family and friends, that when they finally come home, the reunions are truly something to see. That’s why we’ve collected our five favorite reunion videos for you to enjoy.

You might think that only dogs can show how much they miss their people when they return from being deployed, but in this video on theanimalrescuesite.com we see that cats can get just as excited. This poor kitty really missed his soldier daddy and literally jumps into his arms when he finally makes it in the door.
