Army dad surprises children at school on Halloween

A trick turned into a treat on Halloween for two children in Frisco.

Ben Thomas is a member of the Texas Army National Guard. He has spent the past year stationed on the Sinai Peninsula, near Egypt.

He was scheduled to come home from deployment this weekend but surprised his son and daughter at their schools instead.

He surprised his daughter at Nelson Middle School during some Halloween fun. He also surprised his son at Scott Elementary School in McKinney.

After that, the family reunited. Mom put a big welcome home sign in the front yard. It wasn’t the typical Halloween yard décor but still pretty awesome.
