CHATTANOOGA, TN (WRCB) - A heart-warming reunion took place Saturday night at Hamilton Place Mall.

In the midst of busy shoppers, a local soldier with the Army National Guard surprised his three children with an unexpected homecoming. 

Sergeant Michael Cravey was deployed to Afghanistan in February and was supposed to be gone for a year.

Now he'll be spending the holiday with those he loves the most.

"This would be my second Christmas that I'd miss with my family. And just being able to come and be a part of it with them and see what Santa Claus brings them, and get to spend that time with them is priceless," said Sgt. Michael Cravey, Army National Guard 

Mom was in on the surprise. She says it was wonderful to see her children's reactions.
