Speicher had been deployed in Jordan for six months, and that was how long since she had last hugged her tiny two-year-old son Bennet.

The mother and son reunion was captured on camera and posted on Youtube by Storyful Rights Management.

Diem Carpenter, a Navy Gunner, hadn't seen her son Gabriel for nearly 10 months. She had been deployed overseas for the 6th time in her 17 year career, so her absence was something her son was used to.

Carpenter arrived on September 14, 2018, and she decided to surprise him. Gabriel is a member of the Ankeny Centennial's sophomore football team and he was astounded to his mother jog onto the field.

Gabriel ran to hug his mom while his teammates cheered. Carpenter has promised she will be attending all of his future games as she doesn't expect to be deployed for the next three years.
