‘I haven’t seen him in 20 months’: Navy Captain surprises his 7-year-old son at school

For nearly the past two years the only time Captain Jon-Andrew Anderson got away from the heat of Bahrain and voyaging through the seas were when he was on the phone with his son, Ethan.
“Once you hang up with him, it’s back, it’s back to 135 degrees and getting back on the ship and going,” Anderson said about the 4 a.m. calls that he would make just to say good night.
The best way to end years of separation was for Captain Anderson to surprise Ethan at school. The reunion took place during the second grader’s P.E. class. Captain Anderson entered the gym as the class was getting ready to roller skate. Ethan ran into his dad’s arms after recognizing him and the best part is that he won’t have to let go for some time. Captain Anderson won’t have to return to sea for the next few years.
