A surprise military homecoming, a plane setting a world record and a group marching in honor of fallen service members are some of the moments that captivated our attention this week. Take a look at this week in video.
A special homecoming
A sailor came home and surprised his mom in California.
According to a family member who was there to capture the special moment, Seaman Daniel Perez Rubio hasn't been home in nearly two years.
Rubio is a K-9 handler with the Navy and has been stationed in the Middle East. Back stateside, Rubio wanted to make sure he left his mother with a special memory.

Delivery driver jumps into action
A Los Angeles-area delivery driver jumped out of his car to save a toddler who ran through a busy street.
The scary moment was captured on Gerson Tavares' dashcam. The 2-year-old boy was wearing only a diaper and was distracted playing a game tablet.
Tavares ran down the road waving his arms as a way to alert drivers of the situation.
"I run more and more (crying). I know if I got out of the lane the drivers don't see the boy," he told TV station KCAL. "The boy is little, little."
He eventually got the boy in his arms.
"I'm not the hero. God is the hero," Tavares said.
Plane flies through tunnel — and sets Guinness World Record at the same time
Some pilots focus on flying high, but Dario Costa's success at flying low has landed him in the Guinness Book of World Records.
The 41-year-old Italian stunt pilot on Saturday successfully maneuvered a custom-modified Zivko Edge 540 race plane through the twin Çatalca tunnels along the Northern Marmara Highway in Turkey.
In total, Costa set five records with his feat: Longest tunnel flown through with an airplane, first airplane flight through a tunnel, longest flight under a solid obstacle, first airplane flight through two tunnels and first airplane takeoff from a tunnel. Only the first was officially recognized with a certificate from Guinness.
It took more than a year to prepare for the 43.44-second flight.
Costa and his mentor, Hungarian pilot Péter Besenyei, worked alongside 40 team members at Red Bull in order to pull off the flight.
'It’s the least I can do': Lizzo buys lunch for health care workers
Singer and songwriter Lizzo is buying lunch for health care workers across Oklahoma City, to show her appreciation for those working on the front lines of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Integris Health shared on Facebook, saying that Lizzo provided lunch from Coolgreens for frontline caregivers at Integris Southwest Medical Center.
Integris officials said Lizzo is paying it forward to hospitals around the country.
"Thank you Lizzo! And thank you to all of our frontline caregivers for their consistent drive to provide quality care to our patients," Integris officials said in the post on Facebook.
Lizzo also bought lunch for more than 200 frontline workers at Mercy Hospital Oklahoma City, Mercy officials said.
"We are touched by Lizzo’s unsolicited act of generosity and compassion toward our frontline caregivers. The meals she donated provided physical and spiritual nourishment to more than 200 of our co-workers who care for our most critical COVID patients every day. These heroic professionals are physically and mentally exhausted and this show of support certainly provided much-needed encouragement," Jim Gebhart, community president of Mercy Hospital Oklahoma City, said in a statement.
Lizzo responded to Christine Stanwood, a reporter at KOCO, on Twitter, saying, "We’ve been feeding frontline workers since last year— we try to make their impossible job a little easier. It’s the least I can do. THANK YOU FOR UR SERVICE."
Group marches 13 miles in honor of 13 US service members killed in Kabul
It has been two weeks since a suicide bombing at Afghanistan’s Kabul airport killed 13 United States service members.
A group of veterans and community members in Ohio did a 13-mile ruck march to honor the 13 victims.
The march took the group approximately 4.5 hours. They walked back roads and cornfields.
The march was organized by Austin Moreton from Sabina, Ohio. Moreton is a veteran who served in the Army for 12 years and was deployed twice to Iraq and once to Afghanistan. He also received a Purple Heart.
About a dozen people participated in Wednesday's march — three veterans from the Army, two from the Air Force, three from the Marines and four civilians.
The Sabina Fire Department, Sabina police officers and the Clinton County Sheriff's Office escorted them.
