Soldier surprises son at River City Science Academy

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - A fifth grade River City Science Academy student got a special surprise during the first week back in school this week.

His mom, Army Staff Sgt. Marina Harrison, came back from deployment a month early and showed up in the cafeteria at the school's Mandarin campus Thursday.

Staff members helped arrange the special moment, leading Harrison into the room as another staff member distracted him at the front of the room.

His reaction when he turns around to see his mom standing right behind him was priceless.
