WATCH THIS: Video of soldier reuniting with daughter after 250 days goes viral

One military family reunion from Fort Hood is taking over the internet.

"I never in a million years thought this would ever happen. I never thought that something so simple or something so private to us would just become this big, known thing that everyone talks about," Military Spouse Trinity Campos said.

Campos posted a video she created of their reunion on Facebook that has over 3 million views.

"A couple months before he came home, I started this video and we started making our signs and I just recorded things as it was happening," Trinity said.

She put together shots of things like her 3-year-old daughter Aria carrying around her "daddy bear."

"While I was home, daddy bear was just a little teddy bear on the wall, but then when I left it became a little bit of security," specialist Bryan Campos said.

Aria held onto the teddy bear for almost 9 months while her dad was deployed in Germany.

"The hardest thing about that was trying to explain to our daughter, who is 3-years-old, that I have to leave," Bryan said.

So instead of hiding the deployment, Trinity made it a journey for her daughter to look back on.

"It's her favorite video, she watches it every day," Trinity said.

The excitement for Specialist Campos' return didn't stop with his wife and daughter, it carried onto his dog, Tank .

Campos also posted the video of the military reunion with Tank on Facebook.
