U.S. Army Reserve Sgt. Surprises Daughter at School

January 31, 2012

An Army Reserve officer made a surprise homecoming last Tuesday. It’s a long trip from Iraq to Russell, Kansas, but Sgt. Loren Schroeder says the look on his daughter Emma’s face made it all worthwhile.

While Emma was taking a water fountain break, her dad snuck in and sat at her desk, anxiously waiting for her to come back.

“When I came back in I saw him and started crying,” said Emma Schroeder.

Sgt. Schroeder left for Iraq this past October. His deployment is for an entire year but he was able to take leave to get some much-needed family time.

Sgt. Schroeder will be in Kansas for two weeks before heading back to Iraq. He hopes to be home in late October.
