Makayla Twigg, 22, poses for photos on her graduation day at Harding University in Buffalo, New York, while brother Daylon hides behind a screen
Suddenly her brother, Airman 1st Class Daylon Twigg, appeared behind a screen.
Makayla, who is very close to her brother, let out a cry of disbelief before she jumped into her brother's arms.
Daylon had been stationed in Misawa, Japan for the past two years before settling in Mountain Home Air Force Base, Idaho.
Suddenly Makayla & # 39; s brother Daylon appears behind a screen and surprises her after telling his sister that he would not be able to make her special day
Prior to the graduation ceremony, which took place on 11 May, Daylon had told Makayla that he unfortunately could not make her special day.
After Backlon had waited for backstage during the opening program, he withdrew the big surprise after Makayla had crossed the stage and the university president shook hands.
Makayla, who studied broadcast journalism, said: & I was so shocked. He told me he had to work and couldn't get out because he was just at his new station, so I wasn't expecting him at all.

After the surprise of her brother, pictured together as children, Makayla said: & I wish I could relive that whole day again & # 39;
& # 39; He called me that morning for my graduation and gave me a very sentimental, nice message about how proud he was, but I was just about to move out of my student house.
& # 39; I didn't really have time to really talk to him, so I was planning to call him back later – then he came up. It still feels crazy.
& # 39; I wish I could relive that whole day, because not only was Daylon a big surprise, but I was surrounded by so much love and I was really just proud of myself and as if I had made all my family and friends proud .
& # 39; That was a very good feeling. & # 39;
