PEMBROKE PARK, Fla. - A YouTube video of a Florida State University graduate who returned to campus for a surprise reunion with his girlfriend after nine months in Afghanistan is going viral.

The video, titled "One FSU Pike's surprise return home from Afghanistan," chronicles Sgt. Clark Rahman on his May 22 return to Tallahassee after a nine-month deployment in Afghanistan.

Rahman, a 2012 FSU graduate and member of the Pi Kappa Alpha fraternity, "planned to surprise his unsuspecting girlfriend" at the Pike house in front of his fraternity brothers and her sorority sisters, the video explains.

After arriving in Tampa, Rahman is driven to Tallahassee by friends and steps out into the plastic cup-filled lawn of the frat house, where his girlfriend races into his arms for the tearful embrace.
