Every year on the anniversary of the end of the first World War, America celebrates the men and women who have served their country in the military.

The vast majority of the estimated .5 percent of our population on active duty at some point since September 11, 2001 returned safely. But along with them, their families also bore the brunt of the uncertainty and worry that come from putting our armed forces in harm’s way, along with the endless waiting for that moment their loved ones would return home.

The joy that those reunited families have shared has given birth to a new genre of highly emotional videos shared with millions online: the surprise homecoming.

We’re honoring our veterans this year with this collection of homecoming videos guaranteed to test your ability to not generate tears. If you’re so moved, here is a list of highly rated veterans charities.

And let us know in the comments if there are any classic homecoming videos we’ve missed.

Happy Thanksgiving
