Spartanburg soldier surprises daughter at school after 9 months overseas


. WELCOME BACK, WHAT DO YOU REMEMBER AND BEING NINE. MALLORY WON’T FORGET THE DAY HER DAD CAME HOME FROM OVERSEAS. THIS WAS WONDERFUL TO SEE. IMAGINE NOT SEEING YOUR DAUGHTER FOR 259 DAYS. THAT LONG SEPARATION ENDED FOR JOHN MICHAEL CHANCE AND MALLORY AS THEY BEGIN A NEW CHAPTER ON AMERICAN SOIL. THE CLUB LINED THE ROAD OUTSIDE CANNONS ELEMENTARY WITH OLD GLORY. OUR NEWS CREW ARRIVED, AFTER NINE MONTHS OF DUTY CHANCE WALKED INTO HIS DAUGHTER’S LUNCHROOM. MALLORY OVERCOME WITH SURPRISE AND DELIGHT. THE LONG HUG A LONG TIME COMING. MY HEART MELTED. SHE’S GROWN AND MATURED. MALLORY HAPPY TO JOIN THE DAY WITH HER TEACHERS AND CLASSMATES. I’M PROUD OF MY DADDY. IT MADE A LOT OF PEOPLE HAPPY. HER MOTHER AND SCHOOL SPENT WEEKS PLANNING THE SURPRISE. I WANT IT TO BE SPECIAL FOR HER. CHANCE’S FATHER WAS TOUCHED TO SEE THE RECEPTION. BACK IN THE VIETNAM ERA WHEN WE CAME BACK IT WAS MORE HOSTILITY. THAT’S WHY TODAY IT WAS AWESOME. THE THIRD GRADE CLASS PREPARED A POEM. I’M MIGHTY PROUD OF THAT RAGGED OLD FLAG. THE HOMECOMING WILL MEAN A NEW HOME FOR MALLORY, THEY WILL JOIN HIM IN NORTH CAROLINA AT THE END OF THE SCHOOL YEAR. WHEN WE TALK ABOUT SACRIFICES IT MAY BE DISTANT, WHEN WE SEE IT UP CLOSE THEY REALIZE IT. IT MAY BE A LONG TIME BEFORE MALLORY LET’S GO OF HER DADDY. SEEMS LIKE A TOUGH GUY, A SOLDIER AND HE’S ABOUT TO TEAR UP, IT’S SO MOVING. WE COULD RUN THIS STORY EVERY DAY. WE TALKED ABOUT HOW DIFFICULT WHERE HE WAS STATIONED THERE WERE FAMILIES AND HE MISSED THIS. THE SACRIFICES IS TRUE. HE’S HOME AND HOME SAFE. WE ALL KNOW SOMEONE LIKE THIS. THE NEIGHBORS ACROSS THE STREET
