MILFORD, OH (September 23, 2020) – It was one of those special moments today at Milford High School when MHS Class of 2019 graduate Jacob Brehm, currently serving in the United States Marine Corps, surprised his younger brother, Aiden Brehm with a visit at school.

Jacob is serving in the Marines and due to the global pandemic has not been able to return home, or see his family since earlier this year. The unique circumstances provided a very special opportunity for Milford Schools to continue their focus on relationships while demonstrating a deeply held appreciation for those serving in the military.

Today, Jacob surprised his younger brother, Milford High School Freshmen Aiden Brehm when he returned to Milford High School so they could share an emotional and surprise reunion. Aiden and his classmates were walking around the perimeter of the school on a “mask break” when his brother came out to surprise him.
