Two children attending Roosevelt Elementary school got a quite a surprise.
It happened during a ceremony honoring past and present military veterans on Friday.
School leaders arranged for their father, who is serving in the Air Force, to make an unexpected visit.
"I am astounded, I am pleased, I am so honored that they wanted to help us like this," said Staff Sergeant Mathew Fischer.
Fischer has been away for about four months.
His children, Avery and Evie were not only surprised but thrilled.
"We have been talking by phone and on the computer. But I was getting tired of that. I wanted him to come home. My dream came true," said Avery.
Mom and the children will move to Kansas to be with Mathew next week.
