As Tamara Twiner was about to walk down the aisle to marry her fiancé, the only thing missing from her perfect day was her son, Zaykeese Riley. Zaykeese is an AIT solider at Fort Lee, VA, and as a military mom, Tamara knew that he wouldn’t be allowed to come to her wedding in Houston, TX. Zaykeese was also sad to miss his mom’s wedding day, but it was his grandmother who came forward with some words of wisdom. Grandma suggested that Zaykeese pour his heart out in a long letter to his chain of command, letting them know how special it would be if they’d grant him leave.   He did, and the Army commanding officers were so moved by his words, they granted Zaykeese leave for the day! So without telling his mom, he flew to Houston and arranged an incredible surprise with help from his family. Wait til you see the reaction when she sees him.
