It had been eight months since 4-year-old Carrina Kaluza had seen her dad, who had been deployed in Afghanistan serving in the Air Force. On Monday morning, Carrina got the surprise of a lifetime when her dad, Master Sgt. Tim Kaluza, surprised her during her kindergarten class and wrapped her up in a hug.
“Daddy!” the little girl shouted when she saw him standing in the doorway.
From the Valdosta Daily Times:
Master Sgt. Kaluza with the 824 BDS at Moody Air Force had been away from his family for eight months during a deployment to Afghanistan. This was only one of his several deployments.
“Too many to count, I couldn’t even tell you,” said Kaluza.
His wife Ashely Kaluza was able to see him on Saturday, but for Carrina, 6-year-old Savannah and 20 month old Alaina, Monday was the first day in eight months that they have seen their dad in person and not just on a computer screen during Skype sessions.
