This proud mother of US Marine serving overseas is very confused when she goes in for a routine check-up at her health clinic after being diagnosed with cancer. The doctor was extremely short-tempered with her.
The woman was even more taken aback when the doctor told her to hurry it up, as he had a lunch appointment he didn’t want to miss. What kind of doctor would do this?
Finally, the so-called “doctor” pulls off his surgical mask to reveal his true identity. Immediately the mother is in tears. This is her son who was serving as a US Marine overseas.
This US Marine came back to be with his mom during her tough time struggling with cancer. This truly shows that although families might be separated by many miles and oceans, you simply can’t break the bond of a family.
Fighting back tears, the mother begs her son to tell her why he would go through all this trouble just to be at her side. His answer is, “Because I had to.”
The Marine’s brother did something very similar only a few weeks prior, as her dressed up as an injured soldier to fool his mother. The Marine then followed up with a very similar act. Both brothers had not seen their mother for a number of years.
You know what they say- laughter is the best medicine. And this Marine definitely knows that value of this as he tricks his mother and gets her laughing and crying at the same time.
