Military Dad Surprises Son Before His Birthday During Gym Class

A seven-year-old boy thought he was taking part in a regular gym class when he recognized a familiar figure standing in military attire on the other side of the floor. Park Davis shouted, "Daddy!", before running across his school’s gym and jumping into father George's arms for a long-awaited hug. George Davis is an E6 staff sergeant with the 196th MPAD (mobile public affairs detachment) for the Ohio Army National Guard, based in Columbus, and for the previous 10 months, he had been away on deployment. Second-grader Park had no idea the January 26 surprise was set to take place at Central Elementary, in Lexington, Ohio. He originally thought George would be returning home in March. But secretly Park said he had hoped his dad would be home in time for his birthday, on February 6.
