Marine surprises his family with a perfect homecoming

Lance Corporal Rowan Richter gave one of the most amazing surprises ever caught on tape by suddenly appearing while the family was preparing to take a selfie.

A video uploaded to YouTube showed that Rowan teamed up with his father to give his family the most unexpected gift during one of their outings. The expressions that all of his family members had is truly priceless.

The video begins with Rowan’s father preparing everyone in their family vehicle for a selfie. “Say cheese,” the father says. One of his daughters almost caught him when she said, “That’s a video.”

But other members of the family do not take it seriously and only laugh it off. All this while, Rowan quietly walks up to the rear of the van and pokes in his head slowly until he appears on the camera frame.

However, his family members have not noticed him with their focus entirely on looking at the camera and his head covered by the hood of his jacket.

That’s when his father drops the biggest hint. “Wait. Rowan, a little to the right,” he says candidly.
