A pep rally is meant to lift spirits, but a couple of kids in Wharton County got a surprise they'll never forget at a school assembly.

Air Force Lt. Caton Hammock was gone for a year and 277 days in the service of our country. On Saturday, he surprised his daughters by showing up unannounced at a pep rally at their school.

Hammock has two daughters who attend East Bernard High School in northeast Wharton County.

The school helped facilitate the tearful reunion and keep Hammock's return a surprise for his kids.
