ZACHARY- An airman returned home from a 14-month tour of duty to surprise his family Wednesday evening.

Screams could be heard coming from a large banquet room at Sammy's where Andressen Taylor's family had gathered. They were elated to see Taylor walk into the room shortly after 6 p.m.

"I just screamed, I was just trying to get him on Facetime and I was like, 'he must be working, I mean it's eight in the morning over there,'" his mom, Kusandra, told WBRZ's Rob Krieger.

Taylor was deployed in South Korea. Next, he'll be in New Mexico.

Watch the emotional reunion via the attached video clip.
