COFFEYVILLE, Kan. (KAKE) – A special reunion between a Kansas middle school student and her father was caught on camera.
Sgt.1st Class Jake Fontes was able to surprise his daughter Ashlynne on Monday at Roosevelt Middle School in Coffeyville. Fontes just returned from Bagram, Afghanistan, where he completed his 4th tour of duty, the district said.
The father and daughter had not seen each other for nearly a year. Choking back tears, she introduced her hero to the classroom.
