A Marshall County, Alabama soldier returned home and gave a surprise welcome to her 7-year-old son at his school.

It was a special moment for the boy who hadn't seen his mom in almost a year.

Guntersville Elementary School held a patriotic program Friday afternoon.

Trenten Bozarth was called from the gymnasium stands to tell everyone about his mom, who was away from home on active duty.

What he didn't know was that his mother, Specialist Jennifer Kasinger, was making a visit from Cuba to surprise him.

Needless to say there were hugs, tears, and smiles as the pair united for the first time since she left in January.
