A reunion to remember

Father returns home from deployment in Afghanistan,  surprises children at schools

When Army Spc. Eric Trudeau’s 3-year-old boy, Wyatt, saw his father at North Branch Area High School Thursday, he rushed into his dad’s arms.

Father embraced son, and there were smiles on both of their faces. This was the first time Wyatt, who attends day care at the high school, had seen his father since he deployed to Afghanistan about a year ago.

Trudeau also made the rounds to the other schools in the district, surprising his daughter Briana at the junior high and Mariana at the elementary school.
