Son surprised by Soldier dad at school


BIRCH RUN, MI (WNEM)– A Michigan boy gets a special Christmas gift delivered to his school.

Kadeem Green Jr. only wanted one gift for Christmas: his dad home.

He got that wish when his dad, Kadeem Green Sr., a sergeant in the Army, returned home from Jordan after a nine-month tour.

Green Jr. had no idea his dad was going to surprise him at school and of course, it was a wonderful reunion.

“Making my kid happy is what I live to do,” Green Sr. said. “I haven’t held him, touched him, since January, beginning of January. So here we are, 10 months later, and yeah, it’s an awesome feeling.” provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
