Patch Video Featured in Teary Walmart Veterans Day Commercial

“A Thank You to Our Troops” features real military reunions, including one caught on Camp Pendleton by Patch editor Daniel Woolfolk.

Get your tissues ready—Walmart has released this year’s Veterans Day commercial, which features real footage of military families reuniting after deployments.

In the 00:16 second mark of “A Thank You to Our Troops,” a Camp Pendleton couple—Lance Cpl. Tyler Welty and his wife, Anna—reunite after Tyler’s seven-month deployment to Afghanistan with the 1st Marine Division’s 1st Light Armored Reconnaissance Battalion. (If you don’t want to count seconds, it’s the clip after the one of a dog greeting a service member.)

The video was taken in May by Patch editor Daniel Woolfolk.

The Weltys had one more special moment that you don’t want to miss in the Patch video.
