Soldier returns from Iraq to surprise twin sisters at Virginia high school

- A soldier had a heartwarming reunion with his younger twin sisters at their high school in Virginia.

Christian Espinosa was recently battling ISIS in Iraq just last week before he returned home to the United States.

This reunion was so secretive that the administrators at Hayfield Secondary School didn’t even let the 16-year-old sisters’ teachers know about the surprise.

On Thursday, with their parents in attendance, Destiny and Rayshmarie were called to the school’s front office where big brother was waiting for them. When they saw him, the girls ran up to him in tears for a happy and emotional embrace.

Watch the video above to see the touching reunion!
