We’re thinking about the fallen warriors but also our active duty troops and veterans at home on memorial day…even the families who’ve sacrificed so much for our safety.
Emotional: Nate Lowman, 38, from Ohio, who serves in the U.S. Air Force, planned a surprise homecoming reunion on the race track for his family – here he is seen with his daughter Teagan
Like father, like daughter: Mr Lowman has passed on his passion for cars on to his daughter
Unsuspecting: Teagan and her mother had no idea that Mr Lowman would be there to surprise them at the racing car day he had arranged for them
Back together again: All three shared an emotional embrace after eight months apart
Happy family: Mr and Mrs Lowman are both motorheads and had their first date at an autocross competition
Ready for action: Mr Lowman joined the military 18 years ago, with his job taking him all around the world – he is now enjoying spending time with his family after finishing his latest overseas assignment
