Returning Solider Surprises Niece & Nephew
The first day of school ended with a big surprise for a little boy and girl, and a warm welcome home for a returning soldier.
Little Rosie and Kenny haven't seen their Uncle Bubba, Sergeant David Allen Buckner, for the last year. Monday, he surprised them after they got out of school.
Sgt. Buckner says even though it has been a year, his niece and nephew made sure to stay in touch while he was away. "They wrote me a bunch of letters during Christmas," says Sgt. Buckner. "It's pretty cool. They wrote me a bunch of letters saying 'love you Bubba.' We Facetimed a few times," he adds.
Sgt. Buckner returned last Saturday from a tour of duty in Afghanistan with the 211th military police company out of Clyde.
