Martin didn't know how her sons would react when they saw her; but like any little boy they shared important news.

"Momma guess what; I got new shoes," her son said.

Martin said she joined the military for her kids.

"I would do anything for [my kids]; I mean I'm in the military now so to me that is the ultimate protection that is the ultimate sacrifice that I can make sure that my children and everybody else's children is going to be okay to sleep at night," she said. 

Her four young sons were excited to see her. Martin said they're all looking forward to spending the holidays together.

"After today I get to take off the uniform for a little while and be mom," she said.
