EXCLUSIVE: 'Surprise Homecoming' Sneak Peek with Host Billy Ray Cyrus (VIDEO)

We live in a country and a time where stories of war and fallen soldiers are a regular thing on the nightly news. Sadly, the most uplifting stories are few and far between on TV.

TLC's 'Surprise Homecoming,' which premieres with a special sneak peek on Memorial Day (Mon., May 30, 10PM ET; the series officially premieres Mon., July 11, 10PM ET), aims to change that. The show reunites military men and women with their loved ones when they return from serving time overseas. Hosted by Billy Ray Cyrus, it gives viewers an inside look at what it's really like to be away from your life for so long, and how emotional it can be to come back.



Each hour-long episode will feature three different surprise homecomings, as well as some personal home videos. In Monday's sneak peek, we'll see a soldier making it home just in time to celebrate a special day for his wife, and a surprise that prompts Cyrus to go undercover to help make it happen.

And in this exclusive sneak sneak peek, you'll see another reunion at the Happiest Place on Earth. The soldier's young daughter pretty much sums up the family's excitement: "I knew Disney was coming, but I did not know daddy was."

Watch the preview here:



Are you excited to see a new kind of soldier story on TV? Have you had your own happy military homecoming? Sound off in the comments.

It is very hard on soldiers and families to be separated for a year at a time. Congress is making them do more with less. Soldiers today get about 1 year between deployments and thats all so you leave for a year and your home for a year but during that year your in the field getting ready to deploy again. Yea this show is Great.

Oh yess!! It is about time that we show a positive reaction to those that are in the military and let us see how good things can happen for them.
