Dominican student Taylor Carrigan thought she was receiving an award for her Patriotism at her high school dance, but gets an even bigger surprise when her father Sgt. Kelly Carrigan shows up.
Sgt. Carrigan has been overseas for months and was sent back to Louisiana after he was injured.
“It was a wonderful gift, a wonderful surprise to be able to see my daughters for the first time and be able to surprise them,” says Sgt. Carrigan.
“I flipped out. I was not expecting that at all. That was crazy. That was amazing,” says an emotional Taylor Carrigan.
Sgt. Carrigan’s second daughter and wife showed up to the dance to witness the surprise. He says they’ll be spending lots of quality time together.
