Marine Surprises Wife At Graduation

Posted: Updated:

HARTFORD, CT- What started as an ordinary high school graduation turned into a big surprise for a Connecticut woman.

It was a big day at Hartford High's Academy of Engineering and Green Technology.

For one graduate the ceremony was bittersweet, as her husband was a Marine away at training, or so she thought.

Amarylis Aguilar was surprised by her husband, Lance Corporal Kevin Cruz, on stage when she walked on stage to receive her Diploma.

Cruz who was a graduate the previous year, married Amarylis last year, but went to Camp Lejeune in North Carolina for training immediately after graduation.

The two were separated for months, all the while Amarylis was trying to finish school, and raise her 3-year-old son.

Amarylis felt that her husband's surprise made the struggle worth it, as the three are now able to be a family.
