Sometimes the greatest gift in the world comes from seeing another person, especially when that other person is your brother, a United States Marine, whom you thought was on deployment.

Andrew Watson, a student with learning differences, was going through "rehearsal" with the rest of the Nacogdoches High School graduating class of 2013, when after taking his practice turn crossing the stage, older brother, Cpl. William Watson stepped out from behind the curtain.

Mom orchestrated the emotional reunion with a little help from the Department of Defense, of course.

Cpl. Watson's stay will still be way too short though, as he returns to his post on Monday.
