Military Brother Surprises Sister At Air Force Basic Training Graduation

A young sister at Lackland Air Force Basic Training Camp gets a surprise “tap you out” from his brother and it was all she needed to make her day. As part of the tradition she was standing still expecting someone to come and “tap you out” and her hero brother, David shows up as a surprise.

It is a tradition after the graduation ceremony going from “Trainee” to “Airman” to stand perfectly still, holding your military barring until your family or friends come and “tap you out”. Until then, you can’t laugh, smile, or even look around. Since her brother had told her that he would not be able to come for the ceremony, she thought her mother was about to tap her out! But her loving brother gives her a surprise of a lifetime and it brings her to tears.

Verse of the Day

Then he said to them all: “Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross daily and follow me. For whoever wants to save their life will lose it, but whoever loses their life for me will save it. — Luke 9:23-24 (NIV)
