Holy Family Catholic School held a special event to honor the U.S. armed forces. During the event, little Elliot Clare held up the sign she made for her father, Petty Officer Sean Clare. The sailor surprised his two daughters and wife, whom he hasn't seen in eight months.
"I was tyring not to cry and to grab her before they told me OK she can turn around and see you now," he said. "Still don't really believe it. I've been out there thinkin' about it for the past eight months. It's kinda like a dream right now."
The Clare family is going to spend the next few days driving to California.
