At Mason Elementary’s End of Year celebration, one student got an incredible surprise. 10-year-old Christopher Bratic hadn’t seen his father for 11 months. His father, Staff Sgt. Luis Bratic had been training the Afghan national police.
Chris thought his Dad was returning at the end of the month, but little did he know his Dad was at the school waiting to surprise him. Chris led the student body in the Pledge of Allegiance. During the Pledge, his father steps out from behind a curtain.
Neither son nor Dad could hold back the tears.
