Army Staff Sgt. Mike Howes surprises his step daughter, Jasmyne, during her high school class on Monday morning. Howes has been deployed for the past 11 months. Jasmyne had no idea he was home.
“I was able to make it home in time to be with my wife for the birth of our first child! She was in labor for 23 hours not knowing the whole time I was on my way and praying I’d make it in time. Fortunately, she held out in time for the big surprise.”
“I got to come home for a little weekend visit just for my little brother’s 12th birthday. He had no idea I was coming and was very surprised. I even got to take him airsofting for his first time the very next day, so he had a great weekend. Love you little bro!!!”
