In an emotional and spectacular moment at graduation on Satur Saturday’s graduation, US Marine Corporal Thomas Harton surprised his younger brother Scott Harton at Scott’s graduation.

Graduation took place Saturday morning as Mead’s seniors received their diplomas and walked across the stage, officially ending their high school career.

Scott was presented his diploma by his brother, who would not have been able to make it home if not for the non-profit organization Helping Heroes Fly.

Scott later told Fox News, “I [hadn’t] seen him in a long time and as soon as they said ‘from overseas,’ I was like, ‘No way,’ and I was blown away.”

Scott was unaware of his brother’s return, but needless to say, it was a pleasant surprise on his graduation day.
