Just about a week before Christmas, Timothy Wilson a Private First Class Marine returned home and surprised his younger brother Derek, who is a freshman at East Syracuse Minoa High School. Timothy had known for weeks that he would be returning home for the holidays, but wanted to keep it a secret from his little brother until he arrived.
The reunion happened at Derek’s Christmas chorus concert. Derek expresses that this was an “early Christmas present” and even more of an opportunity to show how proud he is of his brother. Derek says this was a chance for “people to know my brother is a marine; he serves his country with gratitude and pride.”
Welcome home Timothy!
