In one of the series’ most emotional and heartfelt moments, Elmo and Rosita enlist the help of a General to bring the children of Fort Bliss together and create a surprise this family will never forget.
Coming Home follows the unforgettable and inspiring surprise reunions of members of all five branches of the military with their spouses, children, parents and other loved ones as they return home from active duty throughout the world. Hosted by former American Idol finalist Matt Rogers, each episode highlights multiple reunions featuring service members and their emotional stories.
