Military Dad Surprises Daughter at Spelling Bee


A spelling bee at a Boca Raton, Florida elementary school was actually a huge surprise for 9-year-old Skylar Johnson. Her father, Staff Sgt. Therron Johnson, had been in Iraq since last Christmas on duty. But recently, he was waiting to surprise her during a spelling bee at the school.

While Skylar was on stage spelling the word "Sergeant," the principal asked if she knows any sergeants. As soon as Skyler answered, "my dad," Staff Sgt. Johnson made his entrance.

You can see her emotional reaction, and this is a great reminder of what our military families go through. Check out the video below:
