Surprise Homecoming Monday Night at Reno Airport

Posted: Updated:

A very special homecoming took place Monday night at the Reno-Tahoe International Airport.

Private First Class Brandi Streit arrived at the airport to her very surprised grandmother, Cleo Streit -- a local member of the Blue Star Mothers.

Brandi had asked her grandmother to be there, to welcome a fellow soldier home. Instead, Cleo was stunned to see her granddaughter's face. "Oh my word, I can't even begin to tell you what a surprise it is! It's the best Christmas present I've ever had!"

Brandi adds,"I told my grandma, just make sure to be here because she's part of Blue Star Mothers so I told her that he was coming so she'd be looking for someone else other than me and then she saw me, and almost passed out! Yeah!"

Brandi is currently stationed in Germany. She will spend the next two weeks here with her grandmother. She's also looking forward to catching up on sleep and homemade chicken enchiladas.

We thank her for her service.
