TYLER (KYTX) -- It's a military reunion you just have to see.
East Texas gained about ninety new nurses Friday afternoon after UT Tyler's fall graduation. The school's "pinning" ceremony--where an existing nurse puts a special pin on each of the graduates--was earlier on Friday morning.
That ceremony was extra-special for one of the graduates.
Krystle Bounds had no idea her brother, Army PFC Shawn Bounds, was home from Afghanistan until he showed up on stage. She was speechless.
Watch the video above to see how it went.
