WEST DES MOINES, Iowa --The long-wait for a father to come home ended Tuesday at a West Des Moines elementary school.
During a school assembly at Westridge Elementary, the students sang about what they were thankful for. And when a part in the song mentioned the military, Sergeant Cody Grubbs popped out and surprised his two daughters.
“It went from being a surprise in the classroom to the whole school,” Grubbs told Channel 13.
Channel 13 was there for the homecoming and caught the reunion on video.
