Moving video captures moment soldier surprises brother with emotional basketball court reunion after return from Afghanistan

A tear-jerking video has captured the moment a Portland Trail Blazers rookie is reunited with his military brother who flew home from Afghanistan to surprise him before a big game.

On Wednesday, Meyers Leonard tweeted the emotional footage, which shows him breaking down as his big brother Bailey walks onto an Illinois basketball court and calls his name.

The video explains that the siblings became inseparable after their father died in a freak accident when Meyers was six years old, but they were torn apart when Bailey joined the marines in 2008.
