Caddo Parish Schools made an Airman's return home a special one. Major Dusty Price surprised his son and daughter at University Elementary Wednesday afternoon. Price was deployed to Kuwait and Iraq and his first stop upon returning home was to see his kids. Price has been in the U.S. Air Force for 11 years and this was his third deployment.

In his absence, he missed both of his children's birthdays and several major family events. To make up for lost time, this weekend he's going to his son's first football game of the season and will celebrate his daughter's belated birthday.

"Someone who has given the ultimate gift of sacrifice, going away to fight for our freedom.  This is just a small token of what we can do as a school system to allow this surprise opportunity for the family," says Superintendent Lamar Goree.
