A Georgia woman who last saw her son before he deployed to Afghanistan seven months ago was overcome with emotion when he showed up at her place of work — a sightseeing trolley.
“My baby! My baby’s home!” Joquina Williams screams when she sees US Army National Guard Sgt. Christopher Williams before breaking into tears of joy near the vehicle, a moment caught on video posted by the Georgia National Guard on Facebook on July 19.
“I was not expecting to see somebody walk on the side of my car,” Joquina Williams, of Savannah, told “Good Morning America” about her 24-year-old son, whom she smothered with kisses at the scene.
The mother of six had expected Christopher to arrive home in November.
“He told me had been planning it and a lot of people knew except me,” she said of the surprise. “He’s been gone for a while so just seeing him, it was just like it was yesterday.”
The sergeant, who has been in the military since the age of 18, serves in the Macon, Georgia-based 48th Infantry Brigade Combat Team.
The joyous mother-son moment was captured on video by one of his comrades in arms, Master Sgt. Meara Brown, according to “GMA.”
