A woman raced into the arms of her soldier after he touched down at a Nebraska Air Force Base. 

The exhilarating moment was caught on camera by the Nebraska National Guard as soldiers with Troop C, 1-134th Cavalry Squadron were reunited with their loved ones on the tarmac at the Army Aviation Support Facility in Lincoln ahead of the holidays. 

For the woman who spots her soldier among the troops coming off the plane, she can wait no longer, and races at full speed towards her beau. 

The soldier barely has time to react and quickly manages to take off his backpack and put it on the ground while bracing himself to catch her in his arms.

The solider can be seen beaming with delight as she rushed into his arms. 

He momentarily loses his balance and is forced to take a couple of steps backwards to prevent himself from toppling.

The heartwarming hug was seen by dozens of soldiers family members, many of whom could be heard cheering as they celebrated the return of their loved ones back on home soil. 

The soldier was one of 91 returning from the Middle East in support of Operation Spartan Shield.

The troops deployed last February and have been stationed in various parts of the Middle East but mainly Kuwait, where they performed security operations and training with allied forces.

One of the soldiers coming home for the holidays was Matias Domingo who was meeting his baby girl for the very first time after his wife gave birth two months ago. 

‘I was definitely counting down the days,’ Domingo told KLKN. ‘It’s a feeling that I can’t explain right now, but I am definitely very excited to be back home.’

His wife Brianne agreed: ‘It’s just nice that he gets to spend time with her now and get that bond with her.’ 

‘I’m just excited to be back and missed both of them a bunch,’ another solider, Chase Adams said while holding his little girl. 

‘Lots of things have changed and ready to pick up our life back.’ 

Families waited patiently on the tarmac for their loves ones to arrive back home safely
