Army Specialist Ben Harris wanted to give his mom a special surprise. Recently home from Afghanistan, he drove more than 20 hours from his base in Texas to surprise his mom at Scioto Darby Elementary. During a school assembly to learn about compassion, he came from behind the stage for a huge hug. Some of our friends in the media were able to document the special event.
