There are some things you just can't put into words. One of those is watching a soldier surprise his family after being deployed.
Friday night after the halftime show at Bellevue West's football game, the Heatley family was called down to the field for a special prize, which turned out to be a surprise homecoming from their dad, Chaplain John Heatley.
“It's been a long, hard time," said Heatley. "I got injured while I was in Afghanistan. My unit returned a month ago. It’s just great to be back and spend time with my family."
“I'm still shaking and I'm so excited and glad to have him home,” Jean Heatley said.
