Soldier returns home early to surprise his little girl

Expecting to see her dad in a couple of days, little Alianna and her classmates rehearsed songs to welcome home SPC Johnnie Duce. After nearly 300 days in Kuwait, this soldier showed up with flowers in hand to give her a delightful surprise.

Alianna told the palm beach post “When I saw my daddy I wanted to hug him”, and that she did.

After they shared a hug, Alianna and her classmates honored SPC. Duce with a selection of ‘America the beautiful’.
