Bailey Leonard and Meyers Leonard are inseparable. After their dad passed away when Meyer was only six-years old, he was left with his mom and older brother Bailey to look after him. Bailey acted as the father figure to Meyers.
Now, they have been separated. Bailey is a marine serving in Afghanistan and Meyer is about to enter NBA. Meyer had always been worried about his brother’s safety. Being separated from his older brother is hard enough, let alone be separated because of the war.
Bailey decided to give his little brother a visit from the Middle East during practice, and you can see the surprise that Meyer exhibited upon seeing his older brother.
The video has gone viral even though it was originally created in March. Viewership of the video has tremendously increased and was featured on ESPN and OregonLive.
