New Airman Surprised By Soldier Husband At Graduation | Happily TV

A proud Air Force graduate was brought to tears of joy when her airman husband flew in from his base in the United Kingdom and tapped her out at her graduation ceremony. Noah Keaton, 24, joined the United States Air Force in the Spring of 2023, and after graduating from training and schooling, he was sent to be stationed in England. Noah joining the Air Force came as somewhat of a surprise, family members said, but for his wife, Danielle, 24, the Air Force was more of a calling. Danielle had mentioned many times in her childhood that she would like to join the military, following in the footsteps of her grandpa, uncle and two great-uncles, who all served under the Air Force branch. Having headed to basic training shortly after Noah, the initial months were tough on Danielle, who then missed the holiday season with her family. But the hard work was worth it, as Danielle graduated with honors in a class of more than 800 airmen. Ahead of her graduation on January 3, Noah told his wife that he didn't think he could make the ceremony while working on a way to make a big surprise happen. As Danielle stood in Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio, Texas, waiting to be tapped out, her sister, Katie, started capturing the moment on video. Noah appeared behind Danielle's left shoulder, causing his wife to burst into tears before sharing a big hug.
