Belleville, IL (KSDK) - Soldier Patrick Byrne surprised his twin brother, Dustin, at Southwester Illinois College Friday.

Dustin thought he would have to spend his 20th birthday without his twin this weekend. It would have been the first time the brothers would have celebrated separately.

Patrick was able to take a break from training in Virginia to return home for the first time since May.

His return was also a surprise to his sister and great-grandparents.
