Son Receives Surprise During School Lunch When Dad Comes Home from Afghanistan

Everyone was in on the surprise except his son.
LITTLE ROCK, AR - A 5-year-old received a surprise of a lifetime during lunch at school on Wednesday.

A U.S. Army soldier after a 10-month deployment in Afghanistan returned to surprise his kindergarten son at David O. Dodd Elementary to have lunch with him.

Everyone was in on the surprise except his son.

"He was shocked," said his father, Demetric Butler Sr. "Acting kind of shy. I hadn't seen him in like 10 months other than Facetime."

The two spent their time together eating lunch and talking about plans they had during dad's just two-week leave from duty.

The 5-year-old is looking forward to having him back in March when they have plans to go to Disney World.
