When he discovered that he was returning home earlier than expected, he knew he had to do something special. Then, with the help of a friend, he planned to show up to Alice's work.

First, he acted as if he were still deployed in the Port of Africa, where he had spent the last five months, pretending to be in a different time zone to keep the secret.

"I'm talking to her on the phone, and I'm having to say, 'Alright, I have to go to bed,' but really it's the same time. Otherwise, this is all gonna give it away,” he told Inside Edition.

Then he sneaked into his wife's office. Dr. Alice Splinter thought she was going to see a patient. But little did she imagine the surprise she was going to receive after entering the room. She opened the door, and there was her husband wearing his uniform.

"It took me a second to take it in. Honestly, I almost passed out," she confessed. “My knees got a little weak, but I was so happy to see him I just tried to hug him and stand there and take in the moment," Alice told Inside Edition.

During the time that Joshua was deployed in the Port of Africa, Alice moved with the family to another city and finished her residence.

"In the meantime while I was there deployed ... she was really just holding everything together while I was just out, you know, having fun,” Joshua joked.

Although he’s not scheduled to be deployed soon, he will have to work harder on his next surprise if he wants to leave his wife speechless once again.

"This was a big surprise, I'm happy to have it at home," Alice said with a smile.

Another soldier also decided to surprise his love with his return was Staff Sergeant Brad LeFrenier.

He surprised his wife at work after being deployed in Kuwait for eight months.

Another touching encounter was that of first-class sergeant Terry Gottke, who had not seen his family in one year while on duty in Afghanistan.
