Staff Sergeant Harold Williams surprised his son, Adrian, a fifth grade student during a patriotic-themed Veteran's Day assembly Friday morning, Nov. 9, 2012, at Schwartz Elementary School, when he walked onto the stage while his son and classmates were reciting the preamble of the U.S. Constitution. The elder Williams arrived at the school this morning and had been hidden off stage until his son's class gathered on the stage. Father and son embraced for nearly two minutes in front of a large red, white and blue backdrop. Adrian wiped away tears and tears also rolled down the cheeks of Sgt. Williams. Harold has been stationed in Germany with the U.S. Army and recently returned there from duty in Iraq. Photo by Jim Beckel, The Oklahoman
