'Welcome Home, Soldier' video hits the web. Hugging ensues.

Ready for a morning dose of heartwarming video montage? Making the rounds on Facebook, especially among the military-minded, comes a video of U.S. soldiers surprising their families. Expect rousing music, lots of hugging and, yes, have a box of tissues nearby.

Thanks to military wife and On Faith editor Elizabeth Tenety for pointing the video out. She wrote on her Facebook wall, "I think the Pentagon needs a YouTube montage strategy."

Melissa Bell writes for The Washington Post and cried pretty much during this whole clip. Follow her on Twitter at @melissabell.
