MUSTANG, Oklahoma - This week, the Mustang School District helped give a special gift to two of their students. 

First Class Sergeant Jason Waters was able to surprise not one but two of his children.

The special surprise came after about 10 months apart as Waters served overseas in the Army. 

The whole family was emotional, each having their own reactions to seeing their dad back safe and sound.

Waters said being away is hard, but it makes being together extra special.
