Tonight, a soldier returning from duty surprised his children at Romeoville High School.
Jackie Fuentes was performing in a concert but was pretty happy to be upstaged by her dad.
Soon her four sisters and brother all got in on the hugs to welcome him home.
Alfredo Fuentes worked for the CTA before fulfilling his life-long dream of joining the army five years ago.
He’s back early from Kuwait because of a knee injury that needs surgery.
And he’s just in time for the kids’ Spring Break, looking forward to being together and maybe even a trip to Disney Land.
