10-year-old Malley was asked to open the classroom door. She had no idea her dad was on the other side...

Malley's dad, Airman Sean O'Brien had been deployed for seven months in the Middle East. He came home for a visit and surprised his daughter at Open Door Christian Academy in Lisbon last month.


According to Sean’s wife, Alyssa, all three of their kids have really missed their dad who has been gone since July. This was the longest he had ever been away from his family.


Sean wasn't done and went to surprise his sons too. When he went to see his son Lincoln, it was hero week and Lincoln was dressed as an airman, because his dad is his hero.
