Technical Sergeant Robert Naylor Jr. has served in the Air Force for 14 years, but coming home from his fourth deployment he really wanted to make it to be special for his 10-year-old son, Amari.
To make sure that the surprise was a success, TSgt. Naylor’s wife and Amari’s school spent more than a month planning the reunion. Originally scheduled to be deployed to Afghanistan for six months, TSgt. Naylor’s return was pushed back a couple more weeks. Even with the countdown calendar at home Amari hadn’t realized he would be hugging his dad again soon.
