JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (FOX 35 WOFL) - A huge surprise for one military mom was more than year in the making. It was the ultimate surprise.
Military Mom, Rekita Lee, got an emotional surprise when her son, Tre'Vaughn Lee, came home from his deployment in Japan.
The two had not seen each other since August 2016 and she was not expecting to see him over the holidays.
To pull of the surprise appearance, Tre'Vaughn told his mom he was being sent on a new training mission that would help his marine corps career. This means he would not be able to speak to her for a while.
Then he showed up at his grandparents' Jacksonville home and waited in the kitchen.
When Rekita walked in, she exploded with emotion.
