US serviceman breaks down after wife reveals birthday surprise at Oklahoma home

Tears welled in the eyes of a US soldier after a surprise visit from his family to celebrate his 30th birthday at his Oklahoma home.

The military man, named Matt, had not seen his family for over a year when his wife made the call to bring them over while Matt's brother put together a video of pictures and messages to watch.

The wife coordinated the surprise by telling her husband she wanted to record his reaction to the video and gift to be sent to his family, when it took place in January 2017.
