Local Afghan Vet and Sons Share Tearful Reunion

Staff Sgt. Christopher Page of Easley surprised his two sons at their schools with an early homecoming. Grab a hanky for this one.

There's few things more touching than seeing war vets surprising their loved ones with an early and unexpected homecoming. And that certainly applies to two surprise homecomings Wednesday that took place in Easley and reported by WYFF.

Army Staff Sgt. Christopher Page, who has been serving the country the past year in Afghanistan, was supposed to return home to his family in May. Instead, he got out early and managed to surprise his two sons at their respective schools.

In the first, Page surprises his son, Hunter, Easley High's JROTC battalion commander, during a ceremony in the school gym honoring the troop. The second came afterward at Gettys Middle School, when Page's younger son, Chandler, was surprised by his dad at a special assembly arranged just for him.

According to WYFF, the boys' mother let the two schools' principals know of the early homecoming, and the principals took it from there to set it all up.
