There wasn’t a dry eye in North River Christian Academy’s gymnasium Thursday morning as Tech Sgt. Jonathan Lewis surprised his four children by returning home early from Afghanistan.

Sgt. Lewis has deployed three times, twice as a marine and the most recent tour in the U.S. Air Force. He has not seen his family in over half a year.
He was welcomed Thursday not only by his children, but the entire student body and staff at North River Christian Academy.
Students held with handmade signs, waved American flags, chanted USA, shared lots of hugs and just as many tears!

“It was great to see the support,” Lewis said. “I was surprised. you are humbled to see it. it’s hard to put yourself in their shores. but i am thankful for it. ”

The Lewis kids, did not have to go back to class after this wonderful surprise. The whole family went home to be together for the first time in many months.

Welcome home, sir and Thank you for your service!
