Sergeant Andy Weaver Surprises Daughter on Return from Deployment

Posted

McKENZIE (May 10) — Sergeant Andy Weaver returned home Friday from a 10-month deployment to Poland with the 278th Armor Calvary of the U.S. Army. His specialty is a gunner on a M1A1 Abrams tank.

He and his wife, Callan (Hayes) Weaver made a visit to McKenzie Elementary School to surprise their daughter, Rena, age 6.

As Rena’s class entered the playground, she spotted her dad sitting at the foot of some play equipment. Pausing momentarily to evaluate who she just saw for the first time in 10 months, she quickened her step toward her father, leaped into his arms and gave him a hug. Her shirt read “Daddy is my hero.”

Soon, other children were gathering around, some even giving Sergeant Weaver a hug.

Weaver has been in the Army-National Guard for nine years. He is also a sergeant with the McKenzie Police Department.
