An eighth-grader at Oak Knoll Middle School in Hanover had a wonderful surprise at school on Friday.
Nancie Perez reunited with her father, who was gone for 10 months.
Hanover County Public Schools posted a video of the reunion to their Facebook page. The two shared a hug, and everyone in Nancie's classroom was clapping.
"My daughter was in this class and said this was amazing to be a part of! She was so happy for her classmate! Said everyone was crying happy tears!" Elizabeth Thompson Stoker wrote in the comments section. "Welcome home Captain Gordan! What a wonderful surprise and my daughter was blessed to witness it!"
Thank you, Captain Michael Gordon, U.S. Army, for your service.
