Student receives surprise visit in Port St. Lucie

PORT ST. LUCIE , FL (WFLX)-- A preschool student at Chesterbrook Academy in Port St. Lucie, received a very special visit.

On January 13, Commander Anna Franco stopped by her 2 year old son's class after returning home from a one-year tour of duty in Africa.

Commander Franco and her husband drove to the school immediately after her plane landed.

While Commander Franco was serving in Africa, she communicated with her family via skype, but the surprise visit marked the first time in a year that the family was able to reunite in person.
