Sailor surprises daughter at school after deployment

CALIFORNIA - One California girl got the shock of her life Friday night when her father surprised her at school.

Haylee McGregor, 7, had just finished a cheerleading routine when her father's name was announced over the loudspeakers.

Steven McGregor had just returned home after serving seven months in Afghanistan as a petty officer with the Navy Reserves.

Haylee ran into her father's open arms and the two had a tearful reunion.

"I've been nervous the whole night. I've been dying to see her. I just couldn't wait to see her. My favorite little duty," Steven said.

He not only got to hug his little girl, but he also got to meet his 3-month-old son who was born while he was away.
