GRAND BLANC (WJRT) -
(05/12/14) - Two Grand Blanc elementary students received quite a surprise, Monday, at school - their father returned home from five months away on duty.
Air Force Tech sergeant Bradley Parker returned early from South Korea.
The school put his children's classes together for a special reading program, but it was really a way to get them in the same room to spring the surprise on them.
Sgt. Parker says he plans to spend his 26 days home with his family, cheering on his favorite team.
"Just going to Tigers games. That's what we're going to try to do while we're here. Definitely get out and see some Tigers games. My son's a huge Cabrera Fan, I'm a huge Verlander fan. We're going to try and get out and see some Tigers games while I'm home," he said.
Parker is a 2000 graduate of Grand Blanc High School, and will return to duty in Korea when his leave is over.
