Navy Sailor surprises son and daughter at school after year-long deployment

A U.S. Navy sailor from Charlotte is back home after nearly a year-long deployment.

Commander Bob Ramos spent the better part of this year in Kabul Afghanistan.

We were there as he surprised his two children at Elon Park Elementary school Thursday afternoon. It was the first time he had seen his children in 11 months.

In front of the camera and behind the camera tears were flowing.

Ramos presented the American flag to the school, a gift of appreciation to his son and daughters teachers, and an engagement ring to his wife 12 years after they eloped.

It was a breathless moment, hard to describe with words.

Thank you Commander Bob Ramos for your service to our country!
